If the appropriating body appropriates funds to the School Board by total expenditures, funds may be transferred by the School Board from one category to another. If funds are appropriated to the School Board by major classifications, no funds are expended by the School Board except in accordance with such classifications without the consent of the body appropriating the funds.


The superintendent may be authorized by the School Board to make line item transfers within a category.


The School Board manages and controls the funds made available to it for the public schools and incurs costs and expenses.
