2016-2017 Nova Scotia Assessments
(NSA): Reading and Writing in Grade 3 (RW3), Mathematics in Grade 4 (M4), and
Reading, Writing, and Mathematics in Grade 6 (RWM6) took place in
September-October 2016 and Student Assessment Reports are now available on
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.

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:
the money was designed to assist SAC/schools with reimbursement for paper,
stamps, advertising, etc.
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).
Each school with an enrolment of more than 300, and any school having an
of more than 150 high school students shall have an Audit Committee
of three members other than the School Principal and administrative
that assists with the management of the school based funds.” (TCRSB Policy 301)
