  • Guide for Using SAC Funds

    In the School Based Funds Policy 301 under Definition it is stated that "School Based Funds do not include the funds of School Advisory Councils, Staff Funds, Home and School Association, other School Parent Support Groups, or any Society of
    the School Board governed by a Society agreement." As the SAC Funds are an allocation from the Board, the SAC Category in your SchoolCash.net Program has been changed from category number 1068 under the Admin Umbrella to 7026 or 7028 under the Board Funds Umbrella.  This is the same umbrella that the Noon Supervision and Reimbursement Categories use.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call me at 2819.

     Thank you, 

    Adrienne Ryan-Keech
    School Based Funds Accounting Clerk

    As a follow up to Adrienne’s e mail, and with the reality that many of you have accumulated a significant amount of monies in your SAC accounts over the years, please review these basic guidelines for SAC funds: 

    Traditionally, the money was designed to assist SAC/schools with reimbursement for paper, stamps, advertising, etc. 

    Recently, I have been receiving requests to use these funds for the purchase of school improvement enhancement resources (i.e. books, technology, presenters…). This is certainly fine, but it is required to place such requests on the SAC Meeting Agenda with discussion and voted-ratification, with placement in the minutes. Of course, as with all other financial matters, please adhere to TCRSB Finance Policies here, keep accurate records and discuss with your Audit Committee (if/where applicable).

     “Audit Committee

    a) Each school with an enrolment of more than 300, and any school having an

    enrolment of more than 150 high school students shall have an Audit Committee

    comprised of three members other than the School Principal and administrative

    assistant that assists with the management of the school based funds.” (TCRSB Policy 301)

     

    If/when that is completed, all is good
