The business manager will draw and sign all checks or warrants for the payment of verified vouchers approved for payment by the Board. Every check or warrant will be countersigned by the president or any Board member designated by the Board. The check or warrant will specify the person, firm or corporation to whom paid.

No check or warrant will be drawn by the business manager except for the indebtedness incurred prior to its issue and upon the presentation of an itemized invoice, duly verified. The invoice and verification will be retained by the business manager and placed on file in his office.

Notes: SDCL 13-8-26 authorizes the Board to designate any board member(s) to countersign all checks and warrants in the absence of the School Board President. ASBSD recommends the Board designate such other board member(s) at the July school board reorganization meeting.
