9211 - CORPORATION-SUPPORT ORGANIZATIONS

The School Board appreciates the efforts of all organizations whose objectives are to enhance the educational experiences of Corporation students, to help meet educational needs of students, and/or provide extra educational benefits not provided for, at the time, by the Board. In using the name of the Corporation or its schools and in organizing a group whose identity derives from a school(s) of this Corporation, the parental organization thereby shares responsibility with this Board for the welfare of participating students.

These needs may be educational to parents and/or children. In addition to parents, membership shall be available to the Corporation's professional staff.

Any new Corporation support organization desiring to use the name or good offices of the Corporation must obtain the approval of the School Board as a prerequisite to organizing.

Each approved Corporation support organization shall work within the appropriate school setting and in cooperation with the principals and other staff members. Each group will submit its bylaws to the Superintendent for approval and shall abide by the policies of the Board and the guidelines established by the Superintendent.

Representatives and members of approved Corporation support organizations shall in all circumstances be treated by Corporation employees as interested friends of the schools and as supporters of public education in the Corporation.

Staff members are encouraged to join such organization(s) in their related area(s) of specialization or interest.

The Board will not tolerate any undue pressure, harassment, or intimidation designed to coerce parents or teachers into membership in one (1) organization as opposed to another.

The Board relies upon approved Corporation support organizations to operate in a manner consistent with public expectations for the schools and reserves the right to withdraw sponsorship from organizations that violate the bounds of community taste.

The Superintendent shall require that each group's fundraising activities are in compliance with Board policies, including Board Policy 5830, and that the funds are used for school-related projects that have the approval of the Superintendent and appropriate building administrators.

The Superintendent shall require that the Board receives an annual accounting of each Corporation support organization's receipts and expenditures no later than June 30th of each year.
