Method of Accounting

     
   

The District's system of accounting shall comply with all requirements of the Governmental Accounting Standards Board, Statement No. 54 (GASB 54). In accordance with GASB 54, the District will report its fund balances in, and all district and other funds will be designated to, one of the following categories:

     
 

1.

Nonspendable fund balance – that is, amounts that are not in a spendable form (such as inventory) or are required to be maintained intact (such as the corpus of an endowment fund).

     
 

2.

Restricted fund balance — amounts constrained to specific purposes by their providers (such as grantors, bondholders, and higher levels of government), or through constitutional provisions, or by enabling legislation.

     
 

3.

Committed fund balance — amounts constrained to specific purposes by the Board; to be reported as committed, amounts cannot be used for any other purpose unless the Board takes action to remove or change the constraint.

     
 

4.

Assigned fund balance — amounts the Board intends to use for a specific purpose; intent can be expressed by the Board or by an official or committee to which the Board delegates the authority.

 

5.

Unassigned fund balance — amounts that are available for any purpose; these amounts are reported only in the general fund.

     
   

The Board authorizes its administrative staff to take all steps necessary to comply with the requirements of GASB 54. All revenue and funds will be designated to one of the above categories.

     
 

C.
