4311.1 Display of the Flag

The Board of Education believes that the flag of the United States is a symbol of the values of our nation, the ideals embedded in our Constitution and the spirit that should animate our district.

The United States flag shall be displayed during school hours, weather permitting, and such other times as the Board may direct.

When ordered by the President, Governor, or local official, to commemorate a tragic event or the death of an outstanding individual, the flag shall be flown at half-staff. The approval of the Superintendent of Schools shall be required for the flag to be flown at half-staff upon any other occasion.
