Contests for Students
In determining which contests or activities might be educationally desirable for school-wide participation, only those activities of the highest educational value and greatest potential worth for school youth should be considered. In general, participation should not require instructional time or excessive teacher supervision. Preference should be given to activities which make it possible for individual students to work out solutions and creations through their own efforts.
Service activities or contests initiated at the school level by staff and/or student government shall be reviewed by the building administrator for final approval. Approved contests, published each semester by NASSP and CASS, shall serve as guidelines for the secondary principals.
