The Board of Education will limit the solicitation of funds by and from the pupils of this district in order to protect pupils from unnecessary pressures and the instructional program from disruption.

For the purpose of this policy, “pupil fund raising” includes the solicitation and collection of money by pupils for any purpose.

All fund raising activities must be accompanied by a written warning to students and parent(s) or legal guardian(s) that door to door sales without an adult, are clearly prohibited and not sanctioned by the Vernon Township Board of Education.

Pupils may solicit and collect money on behalf of approved school organizations on school premises, when that fund raising has been approved by the Principal and off school premises, when that fund raising has been approved by the Principal.

No pupil will be permitted to solicit and collect money on school premises or at a school-sponsored event for his/her benefit.

The Superintendent shall develop precise regulations regarding pupil fund raising that establish times and places in which pupil fund raising may be conducted. The Building Principal shall distribute this policy and the Superintendent’s regulations to each recognized pupil organization.
