9211 - Parent Organizations, Booster Clubs, and Other Fund-Raising Activities
The Board appreciates the efforts of all organizations whose objectives are to enhance the educational experiences of District students and to help meet educational needs of students and/or provide extra educational benefits currently not provided for by the Board.
Membership in such organizations may be educational to parents and/or children. In addition to parents, membership should be made available to District staff and members of the community.
Each volunteer organization shall work within the appropriate school setting and in cooperation with the principal and other staff members and shall abide by the policies of the Board.
Each group that is engaged in fund-raising activities will submit its bylaws to the principal for review and approval each year.
Each group shall submit to the principal proof of current liability insurance each year to protect the entity against claims resulting from damage or injury resulting from any act or omission of any school-support entity.
Prior to the beginning of each school year, each group shall submit its tentative budget, goals and objectives along with its fund-raising plans for the next school year to the principal for review. Should the goals and objectives or fund-raising plans change during the school year, the principal is to be advised before any final revisions are made. All activities must be approved by the principal. The principal or the superintendent reserves the right to require an audit of any group performing fund raising activities for the school when evidence of wrong-doing is presented to the principal or superintendent.
The Superintendent's administrative procedures shall require that each group's fund-raising activities are in compliance with applicable Board policies and that the funds are used for school-related projects that have the approval of the principal.
