Gifts to the District

The School Board greatly appreciates the support of community members and may accept suitable donations on behalf of the District.  To be acceptable, a gift must satisfy the following criteria:

  1. Not begin a program which the Board would be unwilling to continue when the donated funds are exhausted.
  2. Not entail undesirable or hidden costs, such as additional staff workload.
  3. Place no restrictions on the school program.
  4. Not be inappropriate or harmful to students.
  5. Not imply endorsement of any business or product.
  6. Not conflict with any provision of the Board policy or public law.
  7. Have a purpose consistent with those of the District.
  8. Gift and/or donation value shall be set by the donor.
  9. Donations of computers, computer peripherals, and cell phones shall be approved by the Superintendent.

The Board discourages any gifts which may directly or indirectly impair its commitment to providing equal educational opportunities for all District students.  Use of a gift shall not be impaired by restrictions or conditions imposed by the donor.  The Board will try to follow the donor's wishes insofar as they do not conflict with District philosophy or operations.

Upon acceptance by the School Board, all gifts, grants and bequests shall become School District property.  At the Superintendent’s discretion, a gift may be used at a particular school.
