The Superintendent and (through him/her) the Business Manager shall be authorized to commit the District to budgeted expenditures through a purchase order system. Said purchase order system is the only vehicle through which the District commits itself to the purchase of goods and services.
Re-allocation of District funds within departmental accounts for items not specified in the budget document and exceeding five thousand dollars ($5,000) requires advance approval from the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors will be notified of line item transfers through the monthly financial report.
The Business Manager shall be responsible for ensuring that budget allocations are observed and the total expenditures do not exceed the amount allocated in the budget for all items. The school principals, Director of Special Services; Director of Transportation; and Director of Facilities and Projects shall be responsible for observing budget allocations in their respective accounts. This task is facilitated by strict adherence to the above-referenced purchase order system. Each shall also serve as custodian of any activity accounts in their division, and be responsible for the proper handling and disbursement of funds in those accounts.
