SB District Fundraising Approval, Tracking and Reporting System
The South Burlington School District recognizes and greatly appreciates the significant role that parent, community and school groups play in supporting our schools' curricular and extracurricular activities and in recognizing student accomplishments.
It is important that school Principals are aware of and approve the activities planned by such groups. This helps to ensure that the group serves a necessary purpose for students, is operating under applicable laws, and provides equitable treatment, comparable opportunities, and access to all students in these programs.
Joanne Abate, Fundraising Coordinator for the District, can provide support and help you with any questions you may have. In this day and time, as always, it is important that public funds be administered in a transparent fashion and that the district monitors this effort.
