NON-DISTRICT-SPONSORED ACTIVITIES/ORGANIZATIONS GUIDELINES

Non-District-sponsored activities/organizations are activities, sports, or organizations that the district does not directly support. The district may support the existence of these activities/organizations, but it does not provide funding or pay for staff involvement, and/or the activity/organization is not officially offered through the district. Many activities/sports exist that encourage WCSD and other area youth to be involved with the goal/hope of encouraging them to participate in District-Sponsored Organizations in the future, but these organizations are not tied to the District in any other way.

BRAND USAGE FOR NON-DISTRICT SPONSORED ACTIVITIES/ORGANIZATIONS

Organizations categorized as “Non-District-Sponsored Activities/Organizations” that want to use WCSD branding elements must register with WCSD and follow the Non-District-Sponsored Activities/Organizations brand guidelines. Registration allows us to better communicate with these groups when necessary and helps to keep our district brand usage streamlined while limiting unauthorized use.

We value these activities and their relationship to our district. We also must ensure that participants, families, and the public understand that these activities are not directly sponsored by the District. The following statement must be included on any non-district-sponsored organization website, print material, etc.

This is not a Waukee Community School District-sponsored organization or activity.
