All activities involving funds to be raised for school sponsored trips or activities must be pre-approved by the Principal. Group fundraising activities are always the preferred model. Students will not be assigned individual fundraising targets, and all funds raised for school-sponsored trips will be utilized for the entire group and not assigned to individual students. All funds for school-sponsored trips will be handled through the school office following appropriate auditing rules
If a school-sponsored trip is to be financially supported by a booster club, or parent group, which is incorporated (501c3 or other such organization), those funds must be donated to the school that will act as the fiscal agent for the trip.
Neither parents nor outside agents may use the school to help fundraise for trips, activities, or causes that are not sponsored by the West Tisbury School.
