Admission Charge for Student Programs - May 1997 Revision

Note: This procedural directive was reviewed and revised in October 2010. We provide this revision for historic purposes only. Please refer to the current procedural directive.

Principals have the responsibility for supervision of the programs presented in their schools and shall determine whether or not admission charges should be made. In all cases, the principal must give approval before programs are presented and must approve the price of admission.

Programs as a Part of Curriculum

In general, if the student program is an outgrowth of the curriculum and is presented in order that parents and the community may be informed of the school curriculum, no admission charge should be levied. Examples are music concerts and art displays.

Activities to Raise Funds

If the purpose of a school-sponsored program is to raise money and/or entertain the public, admission may be charged. Examples are senior high athletic contests, talent shows, and music festivals. These monies will be deposited in the school activity fund.
