Santa Clara USD | BP 1260 Community Relations
The Governing Board recognizes the importance of community support of district programs, including voluntary financial contributions, to assist the district in achieving its goals for student learning. Because demands on the educational system may exceed available public funding, the Board recognizes that members of the community are often willing to make voluntary contributions that will provide the needed additional funds for the school district. The Board therefore approves creation of the Santa Clara Schools Foundation, an independent educational opportunities for our students.

The Board desires to work cooperatively with the educational foundation in determining the purposes for which funds may be used to meet the changing needs of the district and its students. The Board recognizes that an educational foundation is a separate legal entity, independent of the district. However, the foundation is encouraged to provide regular reports to the Board on the status of its work and to communicate ways that the district can help support the foundation's activities.
(cf. 3290 - Gifts, Grants and Bequests)
(cf. 9140 - Board Representatives)
With the consent of the Superintendent or designee, the educational foundation, as appropriate, may use the district's name, a school's name, a school team's name, or any logo attributable to a school or the district.
The Board supports foundation allocations that serve all district schools equitably. If a concern arises regarding the equitable distribution of funds, the Superintendent or designee shall consult with the leadership of the educational foundation and district legal counsel.
