Extraclassroom Activity Funds

Extraclassroom activity funds are defined in the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education as “funds raised other than by taxation or through charges of a board of education, for, by or in the name of a school, student body or any subdivision thereof.” Basically, extraclassroom activity funds are those operated by and for the students. Monies are usually collected voluntarily by pupils and are spent by them as they see fit so long as they abide by established regulations.

Extraclassroom activity funds must not be confused with funds accounted for in accordance with the Uniform System of Accounts prescribed by the State Comptroller. Procedures discussed in this policy and applicable regulations apply only to extraclassroom activity funds.
