9211 - CORPORATION-SUPPORT ORGANIZATIONS

The 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.

Any new Corporation support organization desiring to use the name or good offices of the Corporation must obtain the approval of the building principal 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.

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

The following organizations are recognized as support organizations:

 

A.

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.

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.

By the end of July of each year, each Corporation support organization shall submit its tentative goals and objectives along with its fund-raising plans for the next school year to the Superintendent. Should the goals and objectives or fund-raising plans change during the school year, the Superintendent is to be advised before any final revisions are made.

The Superintendent shall require that each group's fund-raising 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 July of each year.
