The Board authorizes a petty cash fund in each school and in the Board office to facilitate minor
purchases, refunds, collection of fines and fees, and to make change when necessary. Petty cash
funds will not be used to circumvent established purchasing procedures, but will be used as a
convenience for immediate purchases of low-cost goods and services. The building principal or
designee will be responsible for petty cash accounts in his or her school, and the superintendent or
designee will be responsible for the petty cash account in the central office.
The superintendent or designee will develop administrative procedures on reporting, documentation,
safekeeping and the appropriate expenditures of these funds.
