Miami Valley Communications Council
Public/Educational Access Policies
MVCC was created by and exists at the pleasure of the municipal governments of Centerville, Germantown, Kettering, Miamisburg, Moraine, Oakwood, Springboro and West Carrollton. It is their support and the resources they contribute that determine and shape what we do. To that end, our primary focus is serving the needs of those governments and their constituents. Recognizing that our actions affect others (for example, our programming extends to a wider area that the geographic boundaries of our members), we will be conscious of that fact and to the extent that we can, will accommodate and serve the needs of that larger community as long as it does not conflict with or reflect unfavorably upon our members or ourselves.
MVCC, in collaboration with its member municipalities, exerts complete and absolute control, within the limits of the law, of the content and all uses of the government access channels. To that end, we reserve to ourselves the right to apply, adapt and interpret all policies in ways that best serve our collective interests.
The education channel is available for the use of educational institutions within the member municipality’s jurisdiction, so long as those uses conform to the policies for such uses that follow. In allocating use of the education access channel, first priority will go to public school districts, second to public institutions of higher education, third to private elementary and secondary schools, and fourth to other private educational institutions.
Use of the public access channel is subject to controls imposed by law (obscenity, defamation, copyright, etc.) and by the policies that follow. Priority for use of the public access channel goes first to residents of MVCC member municipalities; second to residents within the area served by MVCC programming; and third to any others. The following policies shall be most liberally interpreted on behalf of the first category of users. Use of the public access channel is extended to persons in the second and third categories as a courtesy and may be withdrawn at any time and for any reason. Second category users are encouraged to use the channel to the extent that such use does not conflict the interests of MVCC or its members or reflect negatively on them. Programs from persons in the third category may be accepted for use to the extent that they may prove useful or informative for viewers.

SCHEDULING FOR CABLECAST

3. In allocating channel time for both individual programs and series time slots, the following priorities will be used:
· Live programs. The producer may be asked to demonstrate the need for the program to be live, such as being interactive with viewers.
· Taped studio or remote programs produced by an MVCC certified producer.
· Locally produced programs taped within our service area.
· Locally produced programs taped in Montgomery, Greene, or Warren Counties.
· Non-locally produced programs.
4. Regularly scheduled series time slots may be allocated at the discretion of MVCC staff. Series will be scheduled for a maximum of 26 weeks, and will be reviewed for renewal at that time.

All tapes must be clearly labeled, with the name of the program, the exact length (in hours, minutes and seconds), the date it was dropped off, and any special instructions. In addition, the person requesting cablecast is responsible for securing all clearances and releases for the program.
Such clearances and releases must be in writing and must be presented at the time the tape is submitted. It is the responsibility of the owner to pick up his/her tape. If the tape is not picked up within six months of the date it is left with MVCC for cablecast, it becomes the property of MVCC.
9. Anyone who requests the scheduling of a local program not produced with MVCC equipment or facilities must follow the same procedures as outlined in Paragraph 7.
The following procedure will be followed with all Program Proposals, Request for Cablecast, and Requests for Series Cablecast Forms:

· The form(s) will then be forwarded to the Director of Cable Operations, or his/her designee.
