FINES FOR LOST OR DAMAGED ITEMS

 

The board believes students should respect school district property and assist in its preservation for future use by others. Students may be assessed fines for damage beyond normal wear to the materials needed in a course, for overdue school materials, or for misuse of school property.  The charges shall not exceed the actual cost of the materials or equipment incurring damage.

 

Any schedules of fines will be set prior to the start of the school year and shall be published in the student handbook. It shall be the responsibility of the superintendent, in conjunction with the principal, to develop administrative regulations regarding this policy.
