229.  STUDENT FUNDRAISING

1.        Purpose

The Board acknowledges that solicitation of funds from students must be limited because compulsory attendance laws make the student a captive donor and such solicitation may disrupt the educational program of the schools.

2.        Definition

For purposes of this policy, student fundraising shall include solicitation and collection of money by students in exchange for goods or services.

3.        Authority

The Board prohibits the collection of money by a student for personal benefit in school buildings, on school property or at any school-sponsored activity.

District students are not obligated to conduct door-to-door sales for fundraising activities.

4.        Delegation of         Responsibility
