Reminder….we are your service provider The Finance Staff is a service provider to each of the schools and the employees of CBVRSB. Our job is to serve you and help in anyway we can to make your jobs easier. We are a “resource” to you. Collectively, we want to work with you for the betterment of the School Board.
Funds raised through contracts and service agreements (i.e. Cafeteria services, vending machines, coffee machines, etc.…) School-based fees for services, athletics, yearbooks, etc.. Funds raised for charities and/or specific events (ie. Terry Fox Run or a school trip) Charitable donations Scholarship funds under the control of the school Refresher – School Based Funds – What qualifies ?
Teacher social and bereavement funds. These funds must be kept in an account separate from the school based funds. School Based Funds – What doesn’t qualify?
Rule of thumb: “ If the funds are in a bank account that is in the name of the school and/or is under the signing authority of an employee of the CBVRSB, (ie. Principal, Vice Principal or teacher) and are for the benefit of the students, then the funds are considered “school based funds and must be reported” School Based Funds
Funds raised for a specific purpose must be used for the intended purpose. Funds raised for a general purpose with no specific intent must be used for school-related activities at the discretion of the school principal. Acceptable/unacceptable uses of Funds
