CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Jefferson County School officials have adopted a less restrictive policy on how outside groups can distribute information in schools than one originally under consideration.
But some groups will still have less lattitude than others in how they can hand out materials.
Outside organizations such as parent-teacher groups said regulations that had been under consideration by the Jefferson County Board of Education would have considerably changed the way they distribute information in schools.
After school officials researched the issue, they realized that the only reason groups like PTOs and booster clubs exist is because of the schools, and that it would have been hard to prohibit them from giving out information in schools, Superintendent Jud Romine said.
