6620 - PETTY CASH

The School Board recognizes the convenience afforded the day-by-day operation of the schools by the establishment of a Petty Cash Fund not to exceed twenty-five dollars.

The Board shall allow small petty cash funds to be established provided controls are imposed by the Superintendent to prevent abuse of such funds or total spending to exceed the fund appropriation.

The custodian of the petty cash fund shall ensure that the funds in his/her care shall be disbursed only for minor expenditures not readily deferred. No petty cash fund may be used to circumvent the purchasing procedures required by law and the policies of the Board. A receipt for petty cash must be signed by the person making the request and include such supporting documentation as may be appropriate. The petty cash box must be secured daily.

The custodian of the petty cash fund shall prepare a schedule of disbursements by line account numbers. The custodian shall submit the schedule to the Treasurer with a voucher requesting replenishment in like amount.
