8432 - Unsponsored Organizations or Gang Activities


The Grand Island Public Schools prohibits the organization of fraternities, sororities, organizations, or gangs not sponsored by GIPS wherein membership is determined by members themselves. The Board considers memberships in these organizations detrimental to the good conduct and discipline of the school. Interference with the instructional program of the district by these groups will not be condoned, and no organizational activities are permitted without the sponsorship of the school district or its personnel.

In addition, the use of hand signals, graffiti, or the presence of any apparel, jewelry, accessory, or manner of grooming which, by virtue of its color, arrangement, trademark, symbol, or any other attribute which indicates or implies membership or affiliation with such a group, will not be tolerated.
