Since the initial audit report was released, Munnell said more financial documents have been recovered and turned over to the committee.
“Everything is completely there now, to the best of my knowledge,” she said.
A BBPC meeting scheduled for Tuesday was postponed and is rescheduled for next Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at the high school. Reviewing of documents is listed on the agenda.
“Instead of not having everything together and dragging it out over two or three meetings, we wanted to wait until we had every paper and every result before we presented everything to the parents,” Munnell said. “An audit is being conducted as we speak, and we hope to be able to present the results of that Tuesday.”
Moving forward, Hanks said that the district will provide assistance to the group in order to help them reorganize, including possible training for officers and defining policies such as those conducted by the Parent-Teacher Association.
“We want all boosters to understand that we value the relationship between them and the district, and we will help them in whatever way we can,” Hanks said. “They are all volunteers who give up their time and we made the decision to step in not only to protect them but to protect the best interest of the kids as well. They have to have trust with the public.”
Munnell said that the executive board has already begun implementing improved policies, including requiring two signatures on checks, new cash handling forms, new cash counting forms and new forms for a request of payment or invoice.
“Those were all put in place at the beginning of the year,” Munnell said.
Previously, only one signature was required on checks, and Wilkins said she witnessed one occasion where cash was scooped into a purse without being counted.
