202.4 TREASURER

Code No. 202.4

TREASURER

It is the responsibility of the Board to appoint a treasurer.  A Board treasurer may be appointed from employees, other than a position requiring a teaching certificate, or from the public. To finalize the appointment, the Board treasurer will take the oath of office during the meeting at which the individual was appointed or no later than ten days thereafter.

The primary responsibility of the treasurer, as an appointed school officer, is to administer and maintain compliance with statutory duties as outlined throughout the Iowa Code pertaining to schools.  It will also be the responsibility of the treasurer to work with the secretary to coordinate the financial records, the financial reports, the cash flow needs and the investment portfolio of the District.

If the treasurer is unable or unwilling to carry out the duties required, it is the responsibility of the Superintendent to carry out the duties of the treasurer.

The treasurer will give bond in an amount set by the Board.  The cost of the bond will be paid by the District.
