Question: Money

Can the principal of the school tell us what to do with the money we fund raised? Or should I say go the the President of the PTO and tell him he needs two checks each a certain amount and the treasurer did it without any questions. Shouldn't we have voted on it or have been told about it since we are on the board?

A principal should never do this! I the principal would like the PTO to fund something, then the Principal should take that request to the PTO Board and/or Membership, esp. if the request deviates greatly from the budget. Remember that reqests for PTO funds should be in writing, and receipts should be received for every red cent o PTO money that is spent!

And, NO, a principal can NOT TELL the PTO how to spend funds. PERIOD!
