At the September 13th DPAC meeting, we discussed setting up training for PAC treasurers, due to the change in the school district policy regarding how school trust accounts are run. Don Sabo has now met with Brian Pepper, and we would like to thank Brian Pepper, Bryan Mix, and the school district accounting department for their time and support in this matter.
An arrangement has been made as follows:
1. Due to the short time line for PACs to take over full financial responsibilities; the School District will not require 100% compliance for PACs taking over full financial management by September 1st. A more gradual compliance is recognized as a reality given significant changes and early year workloads in Schools and in Finance.
2. Mr. Pepper has talked with the SD Accounting department about providing in-service training to PAC Treasurers who would like financial management training. We are pleased to announce that they have agreed to provide this training on an annual basis to address any future turnover of PAC Treasurers.
While the SD Accounting Department is extremely busy this time of year, they would like to know what day of the week would be best to provide a full day workshop once their workload lightens. Please leave a comment on this post if you have an opinion on this.
