Gifts which may serve to enhance and extend the work of the schools may be received by the system.  It shall be the general policy of the Pointe Coupee Parish School Board to direct those who desire to make contributions to consider equip­ment or services that are not likely to be acquired from public fund expenditures.


  1. Equipment contributed to the schools becomes the property of the Board and is subject to the same controls and regulations that govern the use of other school-owned property.

  2. Contributions of equipment or services that may involve major costs for installation or maintenance, or initial or continuing financial commitments from school funds shall be presented by the Superintendent's office for Board consideration and approval.

  3. Individuals or organizations desiring to contribute supplies or equipment will consult with school officials regarding the acceptability of such contributions in advance of the solicitation of funds or the making of budgetary appropriations.

  4. A list of supplies and equipment contributed primarily for school use shall be reported to the Board by the Superin­tendent's office at least annually.
