District/School Awards

Note: Education Code 44015 authorizes the Governing Board to give district-level awards to students for "excellence." Before any awards are given under the authority of this law, the district is mandated to adopt rules and regulations implementing the awards program. The Board may delegate the authority to establish criteria for these awards to the Superintendent or designee; see the accompanying Board policy. The following section should be revised to reflect any such rules and regulations adopted by the district.

The Superintendent or designee may appoint an awards committee at each school which may consist of school administrators, teachers, parents/guardians, community members, and student representatives. The committee shall submit recommendations for student awards to the Superintendent or designee for approval.

(cf. 1220 - Citizen Advisory Committees)

Individual awards in excess of $200 must be expressly approved by the Governing Board. (Education Code 44015)
