Business/Non-Instructional Operations

Board of Education Credit Card


Credit cards will be issued only in the name of an individual for the Board of Education. The credit cards will be under the sole supervision of the Superintendent or the Director of Business, and only expenditures by Board employees to conduct business associated with the school system will be authorized by the Director of Business. The Board of Education credit card shall be used for school business only, not for any personal business. If the Board of Education credit card is used for personal business disciplinary action, which may include termination, will be taken.

Immediately subsequent to the use of the credit card, the Board employee will submit a fully itemized statement of expenses. The Board employee will pay any charges against the credit card not authorized, not properly identified on the statement of expenses, or disallowed following an internal or external audit.

An employee will not use the credit card if any of his/her disallowed charges are outstanding. The Board, Superintendent, or Director of Business has the unlimited authority to terminate the use of the credit card by any employee if there is any suspicion the use of the credit card is being abused in any manner.
