6113 - Rental of Musical Instruments
The District shall purchase only those instruments which, because of cost and/or unsuitability as a solo instrument, are not likely to be purchased by parents and yet are needed for full instrumentation of school music groups. Such instruments shall be rented with the fee used to help cover maintenance costs.
Arrangements shall be made for the reduction/waiver of fees for students whose families, by reason of income, would have difficulty paying the fee. The District scholarship form guidelines shall be used to determine qualification for a reduction/waiver. Parents shall be notified of the availability of fee reduction/waivers. Rental instruments shall be used only in preparation for and playing in school organizations. The user shall be responsible for any damage to the instrument which might occur during the term of the agreement.
The superintendent/designee shall establish a rental fee for school-owned instruments.
