Section 3313.5319 | Cash payments at school-affiliated events.


(A) As used in this section:

(1) "Qualifying school" means a school district or chartered nonpublic school that elects to participate in athletic events regulated by an interscholastic conference or an organization that regulates interscholastic conferences.

(2) "School-affiliated event" means an athletic event, play, musical, or any other school-related event or activity that a district or school conducts, sponsors, or participates in and for which a district or school charges admission to attend. "School-affiliated event" does not include any event or activity that is conducted in a public facility that is leased by a professional sports team or a privately-owned facility.

(B) Each qualifying school shall permit an individual to pay cash for a ticket to a school-affiliated event. If a qualifying school does not accept cash payment from an individual who wishes to purchase a ticket to an event on the date of that event, the school shall grant that individual a free ticket if there are still tickets available and the individual demonstrates that the individual has enough cash to cover the full cost of the ticket.

(C) Each qualifying school that offers concessions for sale at a school-affiliated event shall provide at least one location where an individual may pay cash for concessions and, if concessions are sold on multiple floors, at least one location on each floor that accepts cash payment.
