Board Policy with Guidelines Revised Date
Subject: District Summer Activity Participation
North Sanpete School District recognizes the value of students and employees participating in a
wide variety of activities during the summer months. Some of these activities are related to
extra/co-curricular activities sponsored by the schools during the regular school year. This
policy provides procedures and guidelines by which district employees may apply for district
approval for activities held during the summer which involve current or prospective North
Sanpete District students and for which student travel is required.
District School Sponsor
Participation in summer camps, clinics and other non-curricular activities will be governed
by the Board of Education when it involves current or prospective members of school sponsored
organizations, leadership groups, classes, clubs or teams provided that the activity has been
approved as outlined below. Any other participation by individual students or employees in
camps, clinics, travel competition or any other out of season activities will not be governed by
the Board of Education nor sponsored by the North Sanpete School District.
Guidelines for Employees Regarding Non-sponsored Activities
Any North Sanpete Employee who wishes to invite current prospective students to participate in
any private activity which is public education related but is not sponsored by the District must
provide a written disclosure statement to parents/guardians specifically noting that the activity
is not sponsored or endorsed by the District or by any of its schools. District or school
employees who receive compensation in connection with such activities must also comply with
Utah State Board of Education Policy R227-1 07, Educational Services Outside of Educator's
Any school employee, coach, para-professional or volunteer who interacts with students in
preparation for or during an approved summer travel or activity experience is required to
comply with all applicable district policies, procedures and behavioral expectations. Employee
compensation in connection with approved summer activities is paid as part of the regular
activity stipend. That stipend serves to compensate the coach/activity advisor for both activities
during the school year and approved activities during the summer.
North Sanpete District schools will comply with all rules and regulations of the Utah High
School Activities Association including those related to activity seasons and out-of-season
Participation in summer activities may not be a prerequisite to membership in a school's
athletic or activity program. No employee may state or imply to any person that participation
in a regular school activity or program is conditional on participation in a private activity.
Travel Costs the cost of travel in connection with approved summer activities will be the
responsibility of the group requesting the approval. District transportation funds may not be
used to support these activities unless specifically approved by the Superintendent and/or
Board. School funds may only be used with the approval of the school principal.
Physical Examination Requirements Students who participate in district or school sponsored
approved summer activities (middle school/high school) must meet the same requirements for
