Question: Managing funds from other schoolm groups

Our PTO is expected to manage funds from other school organizations (ie. library fund, 6th grade annual field trip, Principal scholar fund...). We feel the school groups should be managed through the school treasury and not by the PTO. How are your PTO's handling other groups wanted to use your organization's checking account?

Hi there!
It isn't uncommon for PTOs to fund some of these activities, like a 6th grade field trip, and in those cases, the group would handle the money coming in/going out. But this situation sounds like you could use some clarity on who is responsible for what. Can you have a sit down with the principal and review how these various activities are best handled?
