Procedures for Requesting Reimbursement:

If you incur an expense on behalf of the PTA, the PTA will reimburse you for the money you spent. Keep in mind that all expenses must be approved by the committee/event chair(s) – so before you spend money, make sure you are aware of your budget.

Please make sure your reimbursement form is completed in full and all necessary receipts and signatures are included. Any incomplete packets that are submitted will experience delays in reimbursement.

  • Complete an expense reimbursement check request form. The form can be downloaded here or hard copies can be found in the copy room of the school.
  • Attach all receipts for the expense.
  • Sign the form.
  • Obtain the signature from the committee chair.
  • Return the form to the Treasurer’s box in the copy room at school.

Reporting of Unreimbursed Expenses
If you do not want to be reimbursed for your costs, the PTA would still like to know how much you spent in order to track how much an event truly costs. This will help us appropriately budget for the event in the future. Please keep track of any personal funds that you donate toward an event.
