District Policy 7230-Gifts, Grants, Bequests

The Board of Education is duly appreciative of public interest in and good will toward the schools manifested through gifts, grants, and bequests. The Board reserves the right, however, to specify the manner in which gifts are made; to define the type of gift, grant, or bequest which it considers appropriate; and to reject those which it deems inappropriate or unsuitable. If accepted, the Board will attempt to carry out the wishes of the donor.
All gifts, grants, or bequests having a value of more than $50 shall be accepted by the Board. The Superintendent may accept for the Board gifts of lesser value.
All accepted gifts, grants, or bequests shall be acknowledged by the Board.
Gifts, grants, and bequests shall become the property of the Board and will be subject to use by the District as determined by the policies and administrative guidelines applying to all properties, equipment, materials, and funds owned by the Board.
Any equipment proposed to be purchased by an organization for use in the school or at a District-related event shall be submitted to the Business Manager, prior to purchase, so it can determine if the District would incur any liability by its use.
The Board reserves the right to not accept such liability and thus deny the use of the equipment by students or District employees.
