Question: Students/Selling Fundraiser authority

Does anyone have kids who attend a school where the kids are not allowed to participate in selling items for a fundraiser sponsored by the PTO? If so, who has the authority to determine whether these kids are allowed to sell or not sell?

At my school we have stopped having kids sell just because we dislike kids going door to door. Instead we have candy sales every Friday after school and make everything $1.00 each. If you go to smart and final candy is around 40-65 cents a piece so you will usually double your profit. We also have to fundraiser nights a month like a resutraunt or skateland or whatever is in your area. We also had a movie night at school and sold concessions for a dollar. We have a popcorn machine, a snowcone machine and a cotton candy machine that make it easier to have cheap snacks that we can make a lot of profit from. The movie night was in our cafeteria. Our biggest money maker is our carnival. We spend anywhere from 3-4 thousand and make anywhere from between 3-4 thousand profit. The other thing you can try is having a craft fair at school or simply the fundraiser items themselves at school and parents can come buy them if they want. Good luck
