Certain Special Revenue Funds

  1. Textbook Fund

    The School Board will maintain a system of free textbooks and other instructional materials and related costs. Funds from state or local government or other funds shall be received, accounted for, and disbursed in compliance with regulations, as cited in the legal reference to this Policy. Additional revenue is generated from interest earned on funds on deposit.

  2. Food Services Fund

    The cafeterias operate as the Food Services Program and shall be maintained on a self-sustaining basis. The funds for the operation of the Food Services Program are derived primarily from the sale of food items and special subsidies from the federal and state governments. However, in the event that the funds appear to be insufficient, the School Board will consider and may appropriate such funds, as in its judgment, to sustain the level of service provided to students.

  3. Athletic Fund

    Revenue for the Athletics Fund is generated from events, monies received from participation in post season tournaments, and interest earned on deposits. The School Board may also transfer from the School Operating fund to supplement the Athletics Fund. Disbursements from the Athletics Fund consist of expenditures for coaching supplements, security staff, event officials, post-season travel, equipment, uniforms, and miscellaneous supplies.
