Instructional Supply Budgets
A. The principal is to seek input from the department heads in regard to budget preparation. After the amount of money has been assigned to the instructional budget for each school, the principal will determine the amount of money that is to be allocated to each department. Once this division has been achieved, it cannot be changed without knowledge of the principal and the department heads. Supplies used by all teachers will be budgeted separately.
On or before the first day of school each new school year the department heads will be given a written copy of their department budget for the year.
B. The media budgets will be treated the same as the instructional budget, with the principal being responsible for meeting with the other media personnel to determine the budget requirements.
C. The textbook budget will be controlled by the Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction with input from the staff. The Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction will be responsible for determining the priorities for the selection and purchase of new textbooks in cooperation with the building principals and members of the various curriculum committee members.
NOTE: Supply item definition - items of an expendable nature that may be consumed, worn out or deteriorate with use, (within one year) or items that lose their identify through fabrication or incorporation into different or more complex units.
