The Policies & Procedures page offers thematic overviews, expert commentary and sample policies for schools intent on adhering to the latest interpretations of First Amendment law and promoting the responsible usage of First Amendment freedoms.
This page does not provide legal advice or other professional services. The featured policies reflect a variety of approaches to First Amendment issues in schools. Their selection is not intended as an endorsement of any particular policy, but an illustration of how different communities have addressed these issues.
We urge all communities and school districts to develop their own policies and guidelines.
The First Amendment Schools project and its Web site cannot provide legal advice, representation or funding for litigation. For answers to specific legal questions or concerns about a legal incident or issue, consult a qualified, licensed attorney in your community.
