2330 – Board Member Compensation For Expenses

The Grand Island Public Schools shall reimburse Board members when they travel outside of Grand Island on school business. When attendance at conventions or other educational meetings or travel for other school purposes is authorized in advance by the Board, expenses shall be reimbursed as follows:

  1. Transportation - Air fare or the equivalent in mileage at a rate established annually for employees of the district to and from the meeting site, plus charges for city conveyance if required.
  2. Fees and Registration - As required by participation at the meeting.
  3. Hotel or Motel - At single room rate.
  4. Reasonable expenses for meals.

Receipts for hotel/motel accommodations and for transportation costs, other than cab fare, shall be submitted with expense vouchers.  Expenses shall be submitted and accounted for in writing to the business office of the school district within 30 days from the date of completion of such travel.

At monthly Board meetings, before the presentation of Consent Agenda Items, members are formally asked if they have a conflict of interest with any of the agenda items. If a board member has a claim for reimbursement, they will claim a conflict of interest on the specific item and declare they are abstaining from voting on this specific item. The declaration of a conflict of interest will be filed in the Board minutes.
