School fundraising guideline

There is a province-wide standard for fundraising in schools.

The fundraising guideline:

  • identifies guiding principles and best practices
  • provides a foundation for school boards to develop or update existing guidelines, policies and procedures
  • gives examples of appropriate and inappropriate practices to protect school board staff and fundraising volunteers when managing fundraising proceeds

Read the fundraising guideline.

Like all activities that support education, fundraising should reflect the values and expectations of the school community, including those of parents/guardians, students, staff and school board trustees.

School boards must have an up-to-date fundraising policy that is consistent with the guideline. Visit your school board's website to read the policy.

School fees guideline

Every student has the right to attend a publicly funded school without paying fees for learning materials, supplies, activities or textbooks that students need to graduate.

The fees guideline:

  • identifies guiding principles and best practices
  • provides a foundation for school boards to develop or update their guidelines, policies and procedures about fees charged to students
  • provides examples of appropriate and inappropriate practices

Read the guideline for fees for learning materials and activities.

The guideline helps parents/guardians and school boards understand the rules around fees.
