Jan. 26--Apple Valley Unified School District has become aware of a social media post regarding the consequences assigned to a student for not participating in a school fundraiser.

AVUSD cannot require donations from any party in return for services. Schools within the district often run fundraisers to offset the costs of field trips and students cannot be denied access to such an opportunity based on their ability to participate.

AVUSD is committed to providing a safe and caring learning environment for all of our students and will continue to investigate the incident and take action as appropriate.
