18A:7C-5.1. Graduation, yearbook costs for pupils with financial hardship
1. A board of education shall establish a policy to address the cost of the graduation ceremony and the cost of a yearbook for graduating pupils who have a financial hardship. No graduating pupil shall be excluded from a graduation ceremony whose parent, legal guardian or other person having legal custody of the pupil is unable to pay the fees required for that graduation ceremony because of financial hardship. In determining financial hardship, the criteria shall be the same as the Statewide eligibility standards established by the State Board of Education for free and reduced price meals under the State school lunch program.
