807.01 – Student Activities Fund

Revenue raised by students or from student activities is deposited and accounted for in the student activities fund.  This revenue is the property of and is under the financial control of the Board.  Students may use this revenue for purposes approved by the superintendent or building principal.

Whether such revenue is collected from student contributions, club dues, and special activities or result from admissions to special events or from other fund-raising activities, all funds will be under the jurisdiction of the Board and under the specific control of the building principal or designee.    They will be deposited in a designated depository and will be disbursed and accounted for in accordance with instructions issued by the superintendent.

Numbered tickets will be used as a standard practice for school events and activities to reconcile gate receipts with the number of tickets sold for events charging admission.  

It is the responsibility of the Board secretary to keep student activity accounts up-to-date and complete.

Any unencumbered class or activity account balances will automatically revert to the activity fund when a class graduates or activity is discontinued.
