The Board appreciates the efforts of all organizations whose objectives are to help enhance the educational experiences of Corporation students, to help meet educational needs of students, and/or provide extra educational benefits not provided, at any 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 principal or designee may:

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

    C. provide assistance to a group in planning its activities;

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

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

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

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

Each volunteer organization shall work within the appropriate school setting and in cooperation with the building principal or designee.

Each group shall submit its tentative goals and objectives along with its fund-raising plans for the school year to the principal or designee for review. Should the goals and objectives or fund-raising plans change during the school year, the principal or designee is to be advised before any final revisions are made.

The Organization shall provide to the principal or designee an annual accounting of each group's receipts and expenditures at a date determined by the principal.
