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.

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 Superintendent shall appoint a committee to be known as the School-Community Liaison Committee. It shall consist of the Superintendent, Board members, appropriate administrators, and selected members of support groups. The committee's purpose is to:

 

A.

review the objectives of each volunteer group to determine that relevant educational needs are being addressed;

     
 

B.

provide assistance to a group in planning its activities;

     
 

C.

monitor the plans and activities of each group to ensure compliance with laws, Board policies, and the Superintendent's administrative guidelines;

     
 

D.

communicate school and/or Corporation needs and concerns to the volunteer groups and those of the groups to the Board;

     
 

E.

recommend in-Corporation fund-raising activities of a volunteer group, as well as fund-raising activities held off-premises which involve students, and require that for any fund-raisers by Corporation support organizations which involve the sale to students of food items and/or beverages to be consumed on campus, the food and/or beverage items to be sold comply with the current USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans;

     
 

F.

recommend, for Superintendent approval, out-of-Corporation fund-raising activities which involve students;

     
 

G.

establish and maintain procedures related to proposed monetary and other gifts to the Corporation that will provide for proper screening, acceptance, acknowledgement, and use.

Each volunteer 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 Committee for its approval and shall abide by the policies of the Board and the guidelines established by the Committee.

By the end of October 1st of each year, each group shall submit its tentative goals and objectives along with its fund-raising plans for the next school year to the Superintendent for review by the Board. 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 implement administrative guidelines which ensure that each group's fund-raising activities are in compliance with Board policies and that the funds are used for school-related projects that have the approval of the Superintendent and appropriate building administrators.

The Superintendent shall implement administrative guidelines that will require each group's fund-raising activities are in compliance with applicable Board policies, including, but not limited to, the requirement that, if approved, fund-raisers that involve the sale to students of food items or beverages to be consumed on campus can only be conducted from thirty (30) minutes following the close of the last lunch period until sixty (60) minutes after the end of the school day. The guidelines also shall require that the funds raised are used for school-related projects that have the approval of the Superintendent and appropriate building administrators.

The Superintendent shall ensure that the Board receives an annual accounting of each group's receipts and expenditures no later than June 1st of each year.
