    Commonly asked questions
    Commonly Asked Questions

    • Q: Why must I complete all this paperwork for a fundraiser?

    • A: All Fundraisers must be properly documented for internal control reasons. This documentation protects all the people involved in the fundraiser as well as the assets of the school and district. Finally, it provides us with the required adequate audit trail.

    Commonly asked questions1
    Commonly Asked Questions

    • Q: Our school sales ASB discount cards and Athletic Passes. Is this allowable?

    • A: Yes, discount cards or stickers which are sold to allow a student to attend events free or at a lesser charge are allowable. You can not charge for the ASB card it’s self. Only for replacement cards. Only the discount option can be sold.

    Commonly asked questions2
    Commonly Asked Questions

    • Q: Our high school requires its AP students to prepay non-refundable AP exam fees. These fees are kept in an ASB account. Shouldn’t these fees be processed through the district’s regular budget system?

    • A: There is no legal law that I could find that specifically mentions this. However it is district policy that all AP funds are deposited as a WHIZ ticket to the business office using budget code 01-0000-0-5800-LOC-1750-3160-000-111

    Commonly asked questions3
    Commonly Asked Questions

    • Q: Can I hand out Gifts/Awards?

    • A: Previous legal opinions have been yes, in De Minimums or trivial amounts smaller than $20. FCMAT’s opinion says no gifts or awards in any amount. District ASB Policy is yes as long as it is under $20 and you are not purchasing gift cards. You can Gift/Award a big item if the items are donated. You can not raffle them off, that would be a game of chance. You do have the option of purchasing gift cards through the General Fund.

    Commonly asked questions4
    Commonly Asked Questions

    • Q: Can we save our left over Class of 2009 money for our 10 year reunion?

    • A: No. Funds for alumni groups are not allowed. Funds raised by students should be use on the behalf of those students while at school. Alumni are no longer part of the student body.
