Public property owned or leased by the Emery County School District is intended for the education of all students in the School District, regardless of the political affiliations of their parents or of political parties. Therefore, it is the policy of the Emery County School District that no political signs shall be posted on any public property owned or leased by the School District that supports or endorses the election or defeat of candidates for political office or the passage or defeat of propositions appearing on a political ballot.

Political signs may be posted on public property owned or leased by the School District during a period of time that the real property, building, or structure is rented out by the School District to a private party for a meeting, convention, or similar event.
