Cap and Gown Rental Agreement- Class of 2017

Dear Parent,


LAUSD will no longer require students/parents to purchase caps and gowns as a condition for participation in the graduation ceremony. The District provides “rental” caps and gowns,  free of charge to seniors for use during the graduation ceremony. You are given the option of purchasing a cap and gown as a keepsake or receiving a District issued “rental.” The “rental” caps and gowns will be of the same quality and color as those made available to families to purchase as a keepsake. This cap and gown agreement will outline the guidelines and procedures for obtaining a District issued “rental” cap and gown.

Rental Period: The rental period for the cap and gown will begin on June 5, 2017 and will end on June 9, 2017.

Reimbursement Procedures: If cap and gown fees were included in the senior packages, those funds will be reimbursed for seniors who desire to receive a district issued “rental” cap and gown for use during the graduation ceremony. The Senior Financial Manager at the school site will oversee all cap and gown reimbursements.

Cap and Gown Returns: The rental gowns must be returned to the school on or before the date indicated above in good condition (see below). Students will return the gown only to their Counselor on June 8th or 9th when they come to pick up their diplomas.  Caps and tassels do not have to be returned by the students.

Acceptable Use Policy: All gowns rented for use during the graduation ceremony must be returned in good condition. California Education Code section 48904 states that the parent or guardian of a minor is liable to a school district for all property loaned to a student that is damaged or not returned as agreed. In addition, the school district is authorized to withhold grades, diploma, and transcripts of a student until the student or the parent/guardian pays for the loss or damage of school property (cap and gown). The school district will seek restitution when school property has been damaged or lost. Damage to the graduation gown may include but is not limited to a gown that has been cut, snagged, discolored or stained. If a graduation gown is returned in poor condition the student and/or parent will be responsible to submit payment in full to the Senior Financial Manager at the school site. There are no waivers or exemptions of the required fees for damaged gowns for any student. Per LAUSD District Policy, failure to return the rental gown or pay the necessary fees may prevent a student from receiving his/her transcript/diploma.

If you wish to purchase your cap and gown, please have exact change or a money order. No personal checks. The purchase fee is $10.83 and the last day to purchase one is May 26th  at the Student Store. To sign up for a free cap and gown, sign and submit the bottom portion of this agreement, and submit to the Student Store by May 26th.

Tickets: Each student will receive 4 (four) free tickets. Students may buy more tickets from June 5th-7th at the Student Store on a first come first served basis. Parking is $10.00 per car and must also be purchased from Student Store, using cash or money order, no personal checks will be accepted.

I have read, understand, and agree to adhere to the terms of the Cap and Gown Agreement for use of a “rental” cap and gown for the graduation ceremony. Please sign and return to the Student Store.
