A budget amendment is a transfer of funds across different functions. For example: a budget amendment would result if instructional funds (function 11) were requested to be transferred to the library (function 12). Budget amendment line items should be stated in whole dollar amounts.
Budget amendments must be approved by the School Board. Requests should be submitted in accordance with agenda deadlines posted by the Superintendent. Remember that if a purchase order is pending the outcome of a budget amendment, the purchase order will not be processed until after the School Board has approved the request.
*Keep in mind that budget amendments need to be complete prior to submitting a check request; if needed.
