The distribution is being delayed in order to assure the yearbook meets all aspects of Seminole County School Board policies, particularly as it pertains to non-school sponsored events contained in school publications,” Hunter wrote in a message distributed Monday. “Unfortunately, the pictures and descriptions that depicted this event did not meet school board policy and were not caught earlier in the review process.

Rather than reprinting the yearbook at substantial cost and delay, we have elected to cover the material that is out of compliance with board policy so that yearbooks can be distributed as soon as possible.
