School Activity Fund

The Hamden Board of Education directs the Superintendent of Schools to establish school activity funds for school organizations that are not provided by Town appropriations. Such funds shall be created for the High School, Middle School and for Elementary School Activities.


The Principals shall appoint a person to serve as Treasurer of each fund. The Treasurer should be bonded or otherwise insured by the Superintendent.  Compensation for these positions shall be determined through collective bargaining with the appropriate unions, and shall be paid from town appropriations.


Each treasurer shall keep separate accounts for each school account and school organization fund in the school activity. Revenues collected and expenditures from these funds will follow procedures established by the Superintendent. 


The accounts of the school activity funds shall be considered Town accounts and shall be audited by the Town auditor in the same manner as all other Town accounts. The Finance Director will submit to the Board annually a summary report and copy of the audit report.
