BP 1321 Solicitation of Funds from and by Students

KPBSD Policy Manual

BP 1321

Community Relations

Fund raising campaigns or drives that involve students and are approved at the school level shall be reported to the Superintendent.  In approved drives, no individual or group quotas shall be required for students, donations shall be voluntary and without pressure.  Due to safety concerns, door-to-door solicitation by students without parental accompaniment is discouraged, especially at the elementary level.

Schools must apply to the state annually for gaming permits to operate any games of chance and contests of skill (raffle, bingo, etc.).  Any use of the permit for other than raffles must have approval from the Superintendent.

Upon the dissolution of the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District, the disposition of net proceeds from charitable gaming conducted under AS 05.15.690 will go to a permitee, other than a multiple-beneficiary permittee.

When approved in advance by the Superintendent, funds may be solicited or materials distributed for those nonprofit, nonpartisan charitable organizations that are properly chartered or licensed by state or federal law.

(cf. 1240 - Organizations Supporting Student Activities)
(cf. 3290 - Gifts, Grants, and Bequests)

The Superintendent may limit fund raising activities in order to prevent interference with the instructional program or to protect students from dangerous or unsafe situations.  No students shall be barred from a curricular or cocurricular activity because they did not participate in fund-raising activities.

No student shall be denied admission to a class for failure to raise a specified amount of money for activities associated with a class.  Enrichment activities outside the normal requirements of a course may have individual fees required for attendance or participation.
