3150: Fundraising Activities by the School

The schools may fundraise for student activities, school projects, and non-profit charitable organizations provided that such fundraising 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), 3921.1 (I)-(IV), 6700.1 (II)(A)(5)(a)-(i), 7305.1 (III) and (IV) which are incorporated herein. 

Individual schools may not commence any fundraising activities to raise funds for any “special project” as that term is defined in District Rule 3614.1 until the special project has been pre-approved by the Superintendent (or designee). 

The District does not by this policy create or establish an open or public forum and reserves the sole and absolute right to determine the acceptable fundraising activities conducted district-wide. 

The only authorized district-wide campaigns for solicitation of funds from employees and students will be the United Way campaign and the Millard Public Schools Foundation campaign.

Individual schools may choose to participate in fundraising activities to benefit the school, the student activities of the school, school projects, and non-profit charitable organizations, provided that such participation 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), 3921.1 (I)-(IV), 6700.1(II)(A)(5)(a)-(i), 7305.1 (III) and (IV) which are incorporated herein. Permission to conduct these fundraising activities must be approved by the school principal prior to the commencement of the fundraising activities, except for fundraising for “special projects,” which cannot commence until the special project is pre-approved by the Superintendent (or designee).
