Management Support


The board of directors of the Tacoma School District No. 10 recognizes the importance of
maximizing the use of district resources, the need for sound business practices in spending public
money, the requirement of complying with state laws governing purchasing, the importance of
standardized purchasing regulations, and the need for clear documentation in meeting auditing
requirements.


The superintendent is authorized to direct expenditures and purchases within the limits of the
detailed annual budget for the school year. Staff who obligate the district without prior
authorization may be held personally responsible for the payment of such obligations.
