Contests for Students
Distribution of educational material, essay contests, and poster contests must be approved in advance by the building principals if the sponsoring organization wishes to involve students in the project on school time. Sample of the informational material should accompany the request. Upon the judgment of the principal, the request may be forwarded to the Superintendent and the Board of Education for approval.
Student Awards and Scholarships
The School District may obtain and award to its students, awards and scholarships. The Board of Education, having been entrusted by law, will hold in trust; gifts, grants, bequests and legacies given or bequeathed to the Jordan-Elbridge Central School district. These awards and scholarships shall be distributed according to the instruction of donors and according to the procedures established by the administration.
Awards or scholarships that are to be continued annually and are awards or scholarships of $50.00 or more, may, at the request of the donating person or organization, be deposited in the School’s Private Purpose Trust Fund.
