Bylaws & Policies


The Board of Education shall supply, within its resources, each professional staff member with the supplies, materials, and equipment necessary for the implementation of the approved program and each student with the supplies and materials required for the successful completion of courses of study.

The Board of Education may require that students pay reasonable fees to provide needed supplemental but nonessential instructional materials or to participate in an extra-curricular program.

The Board expressly exempts from this policy such individualized or nonreusable clothing or personal equipment as may be required by the Board for reasons related to the safety and health of students or the protection of school property, except that no student will be denied participation in any course of study or school-sponsored activity because of financial inability to bear the cost of such clothing or equipment.

The Board may also require that students provide certain nonessential supplies for participation in co-curricular activities.

The Superintendent shall develop administrative guidelines for the selection and utilization of instructional supplies that include effective consultation with teaching staff members at all appropriate levels.
