Soliciting Funds From and By School Personnel
Outside fund-raising drives divert much time, energy and attention of the staff from their educational tasks; therefore, the Board of Education sanctions only one such drive per year. The Board will annually designate one fund-raising drive upon recommendation of the Superintendent of Schools.
No additional solicitations for contributions from teachers will be permitted unless prior approval has been granted by the Board of Education.
Every precaution shall be taken to ensure the voluntary nature of any authorized solicitation. No distinction between contributors and non-contributors shall be made. This shall not prohibit dissemination of authorized promotional literature, but shall prohibit use of buttons, tags, or other display devices intended to designate contributors publicly.
Any authorized solicitation shall be scheduled and conducted in such a manner as to reduce to a minimum interruption of the regular school activities.
The participation of an employee in flower funds, sickness and bereavement funds, anniversary funds, and the like shall be a matter of individual discretion.
