BP 3290 states that "The Governing Board may accept any gift, grant or bequest of money, property or service to the district from any individual, private agency or organization, or other public agency that desires to support the district's educational program. While greatly appreciating suitable donations, the Board shall reject any gift which may directly or indirectly impair its authority to make decisions in the best interest of district students or its ability or commitment to provide equal educational opportunities."
Considerations Before the District Accepts a Gift
- Does it have a purpose consistent with the District's philosophy?
- Does it involve a program that the Board would be unable to sustain when the donated funds were exhausted?
- Does it entail excessive or undesirable costs?
- Does it endorse any business or product?
