CASH IN SCHOOL BUILDINGS
The Bossier Parish School Board shall direct that no money shall be left overnight in an unlocked safe, nor shall any principal or teacher keep cash in his or her office or classroom overnight. Sound business procedure requires principals, teachers, bookkeepers, and any other person in any school handling funds to forward money to the principal's office on the day of collection.
School funds over $500 shall be deposited in a financial depository each day. Only cash necessary to make change in the succeeding morning’s transactions shall be kept in the schools overnight. Principals and other school personnel shall establish necessary precautions to ensure the safekeeping of all monies under their control, which shall be in compliance with guidelines contained in the school system’s School Activity Funds Principles and Procedures Manual.
