Introduction: With the latest round of state funding reductions, many more parents and community members asked last spring how they could help support schools and students to reduce the impacts of the funding shortfall. The school board asked for a set of guidelines to be published to help parents and community members understand how they could be involved and the legal parameters for fundraising. The guidelines were distributed in August, 2010 and revised into a matrix format in February, 2011.
