SOLICITATIONS IN THE SCHOOLS
School Committee will place limits on commercial activities and fund-raising
schools for the following reasons:
school system should provide students, parents, and employees some measure of
protection from exploitation by commercial
and charitable fund-raising organizations.
school system should not give the public the impression of generally endorsing
sanctioning commercial and fund-raising
inappropriate competition among students or creates/highlights inequities
these guiding statements, the Superintendent and Principal may permit
or fund-raising activities related to the objectives of the school and
school’s mission statement.
the purposes of this policy, the Shutesbury Elementary PTO and groups
and staff will be considered "school groups". Unless otherwise
prohibited by the
or the Principal, “school groups” shall be permitted to conduct reasonable and
fund-raising activities focused on expanding or improving the educational
and staff of the Shutesbury School District.
