ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) -- The Arlington County School Board is considering a policy that would limit the amount parents can spend on gifts to teachers to $100 over the course of a school year.

The Washington Post ( ) reports the policy wouldn't include homemade gifts such as cookies, funds given to teachers to buy classroom supplies, funds for professional development and Teacher of the Year or other awards. Parents would also be allowed to combine resources to give a more generous gift.

The policy is scheduled to be voted on Dec. 19.
