To ensure it reimburses only reasonable and necessary meal expenses, the district should take steps, such as issuing a clarifying memorandum or providing additional training, to ensure that all board members and staff, especially those who process reimbursement claims, are familiar with its meal reimbursement limits.
Staff issued a clarifying memorandum to Board Members and staff to ensure that they are familiar with the Districts meal reimbursement limits. The memorandum was presented to staff during the monthly staff meeting on April 26, 2016. Staff was briefed and trained on the new changes to the meal and reimbursement policy.
Staff is in the process of preparing a clarifying memorandum to address the State Audit recommendations and will provide additional training to staff. The memorandum will be issued by March 2016.
