Beyond the Bake Sale

Q. Can you help me out with determining if the elementary schools can us ASB funds to purchase student planners and recorders if they are charging the students for them to replenish the account?

A. This is possible if considered a fundraiser like a student store activity. You may be able to develop a position that confirms this process as an ASB fundraiser. I tried that argument once for selling Spanish workbooks and was told by an auditor that is was inappropriate. Best practice would be to make it a general fund activity.
