Carmel USD | BP 1260 Community Relations
The Board of Education recognizes the importance of community support of district programs, including voluntary financial contributions, to assist the district in achieving its goals for student learning. The Board therefore values and encourages the assistance of Friends of Carmel Unified Schools (FOCUS), a local foundation whose charter is to raise money for the purpose of supporting quality education within the Carmel Unified School District.

(cf. 6145.2 - Athletic Competition)
The Board desires to work cooperatively with the educational foundation in determining the purposes for which funds may be used to meet the changing needs of the district and its students. The Board recognizes that an educational foundation is a separate legal entity, independent of the district. However, the foundation is encouraged to provide regular reports to the Board on the status of its work and to communicate ways that the district can help support the foundation's activities.
(cf. 3290 - Gifts, Grants and Bequests)
(cf. 9140 - Board Representatives)
With the consent of the Superintendent or designee, the educational foundation, as appropriate, may use the district's name, a school's name, a school team's name, or any logo attributable to a school or the district.
The Board supports foundation allocations that serve all district schools equitably.
