206.2 BOARD OF DIRECTORS' MEMBER COMPENSATION AND EXPENSES

Code No.  206.2

BOARD OF DIRECTORS' MEMBER COMPENSATION AND EXPENSES

Members of the Board of Directors serve without pay.  Board members will be reimbursed for actual and necessary expenses incurred in the performance of their official duties as allowed by law.

Prior to reimbursement of actual and necessary expenses, the Board member must submit a detailed receipt indicating the date, purpose and nature of the expense for each claim item.  Failure to provide a detailed receipt will make the expense nonreimbursable.  In exceptional circumstances, the Board may allow a claim without proper receipt.  Written documentation explaining the exceptional circumstances will be maintained as part of the school district's record of the claim.

Personal expenses will be reimbursed by the Board member to the District no later than ten (10) working days following the date of the expense.

It is the responsibility of the board secretary to compile the expenses of Board members and bring them to the Board for audit and approval in the same manner as other claims of the District.  It is the responsibility of the Board to determine through the audit and approval process of the Board whether the expenses incurred by a Board member are actual and necessary expenses incurred in the performance of their official duties.
