One Team, One Goal: Student Success!

Fundraising

Fundraisers which could be construed as “pay to play” for the student or his/her family should be avoided.

The financial cost of the participant of a performance type activity should be held to a minimum. It is incumbent upon the local school staff and administration to see that no student is discriminated against or discouraged from participating in an activity which is sponsored by the Cobb County School District because of any personal financial obligation associated with that activity. If funds are not available in the local school budget to fully finance such activities as cheerleading, drill team, etc. then we should limit the expenditure rather than cause a hardship on an individual who wishes to participate. The advisor must realize that any expenditure must have administrative approval and can not be determined by an advisor or a majority vote of the participants.

Be sure to read the Board Rules regarding Fund-raising.
