Therefore, it is the policy of the Board of Trustees to require that <br />instructional material be chosen, based on its presenting points of view concerning the problems and issues of the times, and having an innate value and enlightenment for all <br />students in the District. <br /> <br /> <br />Guidelines <br /> <br />1.
