Question: Original Receipts

Every year our PTO allocates each teacher about $100 to spend on items that they need to support their teaching objectives. We will be receiving our 501C3 soon. In the past teachers have not been required to submit original receipts for their reimbursements. Almost all provide copies of their receipts. My Question: Is it necessary/important to have them submit original receipts? Thank you in advance for your help!

My understanding of IRS rules is that original receipts are preferred but copies are acceptable.
