Policy Code: JQ
Print Version (in PDF)
The Board recognizes the need for student fees to fund certain school activities that are not financed by local, state, or federal funds. It also recognizes that some students may not be able to pay these fees. No student will be denied an education as a result of inability to pay these supplementary charges.
Students will not be required to supply specific types of school supplies or equipment as a prerequisite to successful completion of a required course or project.
Students will, however, be responsible and accountable for loss of or damage to school property, including textbooks and library books.
The Superintendent will establish procedures through which students may be held responsible and accountable for loss of or damage to school property, including textbooks and library books.
Authorization is granted for the acceptance of fees or cash contributions paid by a taxpayer for support of extracurricular activities and character education programs in schools of the District. The Superintendent shall establish procedures to assure compliance with all requirements for reporting the receipt and expenditure of taxpayer contributions.
