    • Materials will not be distributed without approval from the Superintendent’s office
    • According to School Committee policy, “All material to be distributed through the Framingham Schools must be provided in three languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese).”
    • Only Framingham-based, non-profit, youth oriented groups will be considered for approval
    • Materials are distributed under the auspices of the School Department; therefore all messages must be free of grammatical and spelling errors to receive approval
    • All materials must contain the following statement “Translations provided by ……”
    • PDFs delivered for digital / electronic distribution should be at least partially accessible**.  
    • Please allow 5 - 10 business days to process your request. If approved, you will receive your distribution instructions. It is the responsibility of the organization to package and deliver the materials to the schools.

    **Accessibility: For people who have visual impairments and depend on a screen reader to receive their information - a scanned PDF is not accessible. The scanned document is essentially an image that has no identifiable text for a machine to read. The best kind of PDF will have tags, links, alt text for images, and proper titles and headings. At the very least, the text should be 'selectable'. Please see this article to learn more. 

    If the guidelines above are not met, you may be contacted for revisions or alternate file formats. If you have any questions please contact Rochelle Santos, the Media and Communications Manager, at 774-388-7121 or Najee Nunnally, 508-782-6874.
