Student Donations and Gifts

Staff members may accept simple remembrances expressive of gratitude from students and their parents/guardians. However, employees may not accept any gift or favor that might impair or appear to influence professional decisions or actions.

Acts of generosity in unusual situations are not prohibited. In such situations, classrooms or student organizations may, with the authorization of the building principal, initiate fund drives and solicit contributions, in money or in kind or by selling fundraising products, from students, families, or Sioux Falls School District employees. Solicitation beyond the students’ own building must be approved by the Superintendent.
