The purpose of this policy is to permit the Board of Education to honor its staff, former Board members, and other
nonemployee persons with plaques, pins, token retirement gifts and awards, and other amenities.
The Board wishes to also honor staff, students, citizens, and advisory groups for their contributions with
appropriate recognitions and authorizes administrators to purchase meals, refreshments, and/or other amenities
to further the interests of the District.
The Board hereby affirms that the expenses incurred as listed above do serve a public purpose. The Board believes
that "public purpose" serves for the promotion of education, rapport with the business community, community
relations, and the encouragement of nonemployees to serve as volunteers as well as furthering other interest.
