RED FLAG. In most, if not all PTO's, there are TWO people who have access to all financial records. Usually this is the treasurer and president. In our PTO, both of them can sign checks, have access to bank statements, ect. It is not safe to have only one person in control of the money. I am my PTO's treasurer and I have an open checkbook policy. I have elected to not be the treasurer for next year and I asked for an audit before I hand over everything. This should be the norm for any PTO. I think it's time you guys have an emergency meeting to discuss the issue.
