arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board recognizes the importance of community support of district programs, including voluntary financial contributions, to assist the district in achieving its goals for student learning.

(cf. 0200 - Goals for the School District)

(cf. 1230 - School-Connected Organizations)

(cf. 5030 - Student Wellness)

(cf. 6020 - Parent Involvement)

(cf. 6145 - Extracurricular and Cocurricular Activities)

(cf. 6145.2 - Athletic Competition)

The Board desires to work cooperatively with foundations 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 district.

The Board recognizes the independent nature of school site educational foundations, however, all foundation allocations must be in the best interest of the district and support its mission and goals.

(cf. 0410 - Nondiscrimination in District Programs and Activities)

Capital Improvements

The Board recognizes that donations of capital improvements are nontransferable; therefore, all capital improvements with a value of $5,000 or more should receive conceptual approval from the Board prior to fund-raising activities allocated for a specific capital improvement.

(cf. 3290 - Gifts, Grants and Bequests)

(cf. 1230 - School-Connected Organizations)
