District 401 Policy Guidance
For the District 401 policies that guide our relations with parent and community organizations, see the following sections of the Board of Education’s Policy Manual:
Please note that District 401 is not, and will not be, responsible for a parent or community organization’s business or the conduct of its members.
In addition, money that a parent or community organization gives to a District 401 school cannot be earmarked for any particular expense.
Organizations may make recommendations, but cash or other valuable consideration must be given to the district to use at its discretion.
