ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 17 (UPI) -- Officials in a Florida school district said they will clarify rules after students at a high school were charged $2 to attend a pep rally during school hours.

The Orange County School Board said it will clarify policies on the rules of school fundraising following the fall pep rally at East River High School in Orlando, The Orlando Sentinel reported Friday.

The school charged students $2 to attend the rally and those who did not pay were given the options of sitting in study hall or going home early.

The School Board's current rules prohibit charging students for fundraising events during school hours and officials said the rules will soon be further clarified.
