1425.1: Cooperation with Non-Profit Agencies

Non-Profit community agencies wishing to use school facilities for fundraising activities and/or after-school meetings must obtain permission from the Superintendent or designee in compliance with Policy 1340 Use of School Facilities.

The District may distribute flyers and other promotional materials for recognized non-profit community agencies in the Activities Express newspaper, if such assistance is determined by the Superintendent or designee to be consistent with the standards, criteria, and limitations of District Rules 1115.1(I), 1340.1(II), 3150.1, 6700.1(II)(A)(5)(a)-(i), and 7305.1 (III), (IV) which are incorporated herein. The District does not distribute free products to students and staff, except if such assistance is determined by the Superintendent or designee to be in the best interest of students and staff.

Schools may designate a table for literature from non-profit organizations for information that is specific to the individual school. Such information may include recruitment notices and meeting and event schedules. School staff members may announce the opportunity for students to pick up literature of interest and take it home. Schools also may designate bulletin boards for posting of meeting notices of non-profit organizations which are specific to the individual school. All such literature and postings shall be consistent with the standards, criteria, and limitations of District Rules 1115.1 (I), 1340.1 (II), 3150.1, 6700.1 (II) (A) (5) (a) – (i), and 7305.1 (III) and (IV).

Individual schools may choose to participate in fundraising activities to benefit non-profit organizations, provided that such cooperation does not restrict or impair the educational program and is consistent with the standards, criteria, and limitations of District Rules 1115.1(I), 1340.1(II), 3150.1, 6700.1(II)(A)(5)(a)-(i), and 7305.1 (III), (IV) which are incorporated herein. Permission to conduct such an activity must be obtained from the school principal, except for any activity that is associated with, connected to, or requires a “special project” as that term is defined in District Rule 3614.1 must be pre-approved by the Superintendent or designee. Promotional materials for fundraising activities taking place in individual schools may be distributed to students by school staff members only.

Students’ participation in activities sponsored by non-profit community agencies must be voluntary. Students may not use school time to participate in activities sponsored by non-profit community agencies, unless the activity is within the context of the educational program.
