512P - Political Activities

The school board encourages school employees to exercise their rights as citizens and to set an example for the community by the use of the franchise. 

Board employees may take part in the campaign of any political organization seeking the election of candidates for office in the government or in the political campaign of any candidate for office in the government.  Any such political activities, either individually or as a member of a group, must not be carried on in the name of the Frederick County Public Schools or any of its agencies, or in a manner which might be construed to indicate official partisan support of an organization or a candidate by the Frederick County Public Schools.  An employee may not participate or school property shall not be used for the production, distribution or display of partisan political material.
