5514 - STUDENT FINES

When District property, including any portion of a school building, vehicle, grounds, equipment, apparatus, musical instrument, library/media center material, textbook, supply or other material, is damaged lost or taken by a student, whether willfully or by neglect, a fine shall be assessed. The fine shall be reasonable, seeking only to compensate the District for actual loss or expense incurred.

The late return of borrowed books or other materials from school library/media centers shall be subject to appropriate fines as well.

Any student who fails to pay a fine assessed in accordance with this policy may be denied the right to participate in his/her graduation ceremony (but shall not be denied receipt of a duly earned diploma).
