The Board of Education may levy certain charges to students to facilitate the utilization of adequate, appropriate
learning materials used in the course of instruction. If the District determines that a student is in serious financial
need, it may choose to provide any or all such materials free of charge. A charge shall not exceed the combined
cost of the material used, freight and/or handling charges, and nominal add-on for loss. Money received from resale
of such material shall be returned to the Director of Business Services with an accurate accounting of all
When school property, equipment, or supplies are damaged, lost, or taken by a student, a fine will be assessed.
The fine will be reasonable, seeking only to compensate the school for the expense or loss incurred.
The late return of borrowed books or materials from the school libraries will be subject to appropriate fines.
Any fees or fines collected by members of the staff are to be turned in to the school office within twenty-four (24) hours after collection.
In the event the above course of action does not result in the fee being collected, the Board authorizes the
Superintendent to take the student and/or his/her parents to Small Claims Court for collection.
Nothing in this policy restricts the right of access of a parent or student to school records or to receive copies of
such records, as required by Federal and State laws.
