Is it right that the Cultural Arts Rep. (a teacher) has full control over a line item on our budget, and we the PTO cannot touch that money?

Has that money been allocated specifically to her? Are the funds in a separate account? If you have already allocated the funds to Cultural Arts and transferred the money out of the PTA account, you may be out of luck, but I am not sure what your by-laws are regarding this. Also, was the money allocated by your board or the previous? That may also play a part.
