Chapter 79


Musical instruments furnished by students; fee authorized; when.

A governing body may require students to furnish musical instruments for participation in optional music courses that are not extracurricular activities if the governing body provides for the use of a musical instrument without charge for any student who qualifies for free or reduced-price lunches under United States Department of Agriculture child nutrition programs. Participation in a free-lunch program or reduced-price lunch program is not required to qualify for free or reduced-price lunches for purposes of this section. This section does not require a governing body to provide for the use of a particular type of musical instrument for any student. For musical extracurricular activities, a governing body may require fees or require students to provide specialized equipment, such as musical instruments, or specialized attire consistent with the Public Elementary and Secondary Student Fee Authorization Act.
