MEALS & REFRESHMENTS
The Board of Education recognizes that from time to time it may be appropriate to provide meals and/or refreshments at District meetings and/or events, which are being held for an educational purpose. Any expenditure made on such meals and/or refreshments should be appropriately documented and have prior approval by the Superintendent or his/her designee. The Food Service Department should supply meals and/or refreshments, when appropriate. All expenses should be documented with a receipt, itemized whenever possible, and submitted to the District’s business office for the purpose of audit and possible reimbursement.
Examples of authorized categories of expenditures include but are not limited to refreshments for staff on teacher orientation day at the beginning of each year, staff recognition days, refreshments for Superintendent’s Conference Days, community/district meetings, assessment day grading of tests, receptions for volunteers, and other meetings at which district business is conducted.
