Movie Approval Process

Teacher Movie Request

PG movies to be shown at schools must be approved by a school principal. A teacher must request permission in writing to the school principal for approval. Each school principal must keep copies of the approval request (whether approved or denied) as well as a complete list of PG movies that have been approved for the school. Parent permission forms must still be filled out in order for teachers to show the approved movies (see below). Fair Use rules requires movies to be shown for educational purposes only unless copyright permission has been obtained.
