Schedule B Extra-curricular Salary Agreement

State and National Tournaments/Competitions
The Richmond Community Schools will assist clubs or teams that compete at the “highest level of competition” within their organization or sport, often referred to as “States” or even “Nationals”.

To qualify for financial assistance from the District, the coach or club sponsor must submit a proposed detailed budget of expenses, at least one (1) week prior to the event or competition, to the appropriate Dean of Student.  For a copy of the Proposed Budget form, see 4110AG under the the Board Policy and Administrative Guidelines.

On the proposed budget sheet, the coach or club sponsor must submit an "official roster" of students participating in the event/competition and the "official" coach, coaches, or sponsors attending the event.  The budget must also reflect how non reimbursable items will be paid.

District supported reimbursement expenses include:

Transportation.  100% of the transportation cost will be covered, so long as the transportation is provided by Richmond Community Schools.  For competitions out of State, the Dean of Students and Coach/Club Sponsor shall meet with the Superintendent to determine a fair rate.

Lodging.  If the event or competition location, according to MapQuest, is more than 90 miles away from Richmond Community Schools (35276 Division, Richmond, Michigan 48062), the event or competition qualifies for lodging reimbursement up to $100 per room, inclusive of all taxes and fees.

The District shall reimburse the difference between the cost of a standard room accommodation (two queen beds, 4 participants to a room) minus the hosting organization or MHSAA reimbursement for room(s).  Only competing students and Schedule B coaches/advisors on the official roster will be reimbursed for room fees.

If the hosting organization/MHSAA does not reimburse for hotel rooms, then the district shall pay up to $150 per room, inclusive of all taxes and fees, the lodging accommodations, so long as the event location is more than 90 miles away.

The number of nights to be reimbursed for lodging is as follows:
the night before the event begins, only if the official start time of the event occurs before noon;
--the night(s) of the event, only if the competition occurs over multiple days; and
the night after the event ends, only if the event officially ends after 5:00pm.

Food.  The District shall reimburse meals only for the competing students and coaches/advisors on the "Official Roster" for the event or competition.  Meal reimbursements may not be combined or carried over to cover additional costs of another meal.  The district shall reimburse up to:

$10.00 for breakfast
$12.00 for lunch
$15.00 for dinner

Once a budget has been established AND approved, a check will be cut to the actual vendor (preferred) or directly to the district-level organizer of the event.  All checks issued must be reconciled with the Business Office within seven (7) calendar days following the event.

Itemized receipts are required following the completion of the event to clear any advances.  Again, reimbursement is only for student and coaches/advisors on the official roster of the “State/National” Meet/Tournament or Competition.

If a group chooses to bring additional students or adults, the District shall not reimburse students or adults not on the official
