File Attachment:
Agenda Item Summary: The attached motion delegates authority to specific staff positions to perform financial functions on behalf of the School Board and modifies the previous version approved by the Board on June 19, 2020. This revision has substituted position names in place of the staff member name who holds that position in order to continue to conduct business should that staff member vacate their position.

All other terms remain unchanged from the motion to Adopt Delegation of Authority approved June 19, 2020 by the School Board.

Adoption of the Delegation of Authority for Financial Functions will provide appropriate authorizations to ACPS staff positions to perform their duties in financial management and procurement. Upon adoption, this delegation of authority will become effective immediately.
Background: The Code of Virginia allows School Boards to delegate their authority to staff members holding specific positions as Agents of the School Board to perform certain financial functions. ACPS policies also have additional provisions for the delegation of School Board authority.
Recommendation: The Superintendent recommends that the School Board approve the Delegation of Authority for Financial Functions.
