Electronic and material school bulletin boards, displays and display cases, and posting areas are for the purposes of conveying information about school activities and programs to students, staff, and the visiting public as deemed appropriate by the respective principals; however, building principals may use their discretion on posting or displaying non-school related information that is not political or commercial in nature.  No information, poster or other display may be posted on any school bulletin board, display case or other areas without the prior permission of the building principal. The building principal shall have the final determination as to whether any posting is political and/or commercial in nature, and there shall be no appeal process if the principal denies a request to post or display non-school related information (Neb. Rev. Stat. Sec. 79-526).

     ·  Will likely cause the commission of unlawful acts, or a material and substantial disruption
        of the proper and orderly operation of the school or school activities.
     ·  Is obscene, profane, indecent, lewd or libelous.
