  1. The Missouri Financial Accounting Manual, published by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, shall be adopted for financial accounting.
  2. All receipts, including student activity funds, shall be deposited in the School District account as provided by law. There shall be no separate accounts of any organization, individual, or department for funds collected or received in connection with any school activity or program.
  3. All expenditures shall be paid by check except that a petty cash fund of $500.00 shall be kept by the Secretary of the Board for purposes of payment of obligations for which no charge account can be arranged. A descending ascending register shall be maintained showing all petty cash transactions. Also, consecutively numbered receipts shall be maintained whereby all expenditures shall be described relative to amount, date, and purpose, with all receipts being attached to the voucher to be approved by the Board. All receipts shall be signed by the person disbursing and receiving petty cash from the fund.
