5660, Student Solicitations

Solicitation of funds from students, conducted in school, is prohibited, except for those specifically approved by the Board of Education. In accord with the Rules of the Regents and the State Education Department’s “Guidelines Relating to Solicitation of Charitable Donations from School Children”, no direct solicitation of students is permitted during school hours (including lunch hours). However, indirect forms of solicitation such as sales of tickets to a school performance or athletic event or placing a collection bin in a common hallway for the voluntary donation of food, clothing or money may be permitted.
