Standard Operating Procedure - Outside Vendors on EMS ISD CampusesGKB(LOCAL)District Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) are set outside of Board Policy and Administrative Regulations. The District Standard Operating Procedure regarding outside vendors on Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD campuses is outlined below.
EMS ISD does not allow outside vendors to come on district campuses and set up shop to try to recruit business. The district strives to be very diligent in keeping businesses and solicitors off our campus grounds and out of our buildings to protect the learning environment from unnecessary distractions.
As a district, we do allow vendors to become a part of our Community Business Fair during professional development week in August, realtor luncheon, special events, and through our Employee Perks program.
Vendors may also partner with the district through our marketing program. The district's marketing program was implemented in January 2015 to create and foster mutually beneficial partnerships between local businesses and the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD community. The program is intended to provide a community connection that is beneficial for the district, local businesses, and the students of EMS ISD. Advertising through EMS ISD marketing allows organizations to build their brand while helping to support and enhance the mission and objectives of the district and generate additional revenue for the district. Any vendors interested in this opportunity should be referred to the Director of Communications, Megan Overman.
