Policy 4.2.8

Rental and Materials Fees for Students

Having accepted the responsibility for providing educational programs that meet the needs of each student as reflected in the yearly operating budget, the Board of Education further accepts the responsibility for providing the equipment and materials essential to the operating of those programs.

The Board of Education budget shall not provide for personal clothing or footwear (such as running sneakers), nor shall it provide for materials, equipment, or services normally associated with personal use or recreation. For those activities where materials, equipment, or services associated with personal use or recreation are a necessary part of the activity (such as band instruments), the Board of Education may charge a rental or material fee where deemed appropriate.
