Policy –
Regulation – x
Exhibit –

Adopted – 7/7/1994
Revised –
In order to minimize interruptions to regularly scheduled instruction, staff shall limit fundraising activities to appropriate time periods designated by the principal.

The principal or designee shall ensure that letters are sent to parents/guardians regarding all fundraising activities.

Individual awards or other incentives which identify donors/ participants shall not be used.

In keeping with the concept that school-sponsored activities should raise social awareness as well as funds, at least one of each school’s yearly fund-raisers should be held for the benefit of a worthwhile humanitarian cause rather than to finance school -related expenditures.

No student shall be required to raise a specified amount of money in order to participate in an activity sponsored by a school-related organization.

Students making solicitations on behalf of the school or for school-related projects are expected to be courteous and respectful towards all individuals and businesses, whatever the outcome of the solicitation may be.
