Manhattan-Ogden USD 383 and NEA Manhattan-Ogden Negotiated Agreement:
Article XVII Mileage Reimbursement – The board will pay a minimum of the state rate as of July 1, per mile
to teachers who are required to use their own vehicles to provide educational services to students and for
approved district travel.
Current Considerations:
District staff utilize their own vehicles for in-district travel and for out-of district travel for various purposes.
This includes administrators, traveling teachers, home visitors and classified staff. The rate for FY 2015
was $0.56 per mile. The reimbursement rate for FY 2016 will increase to $0.57 per mile, which matches
the current federal mileage rate.
District Goal:
5. The district will provide support of programs through existing and new resources.
Board of Education Policy:
GAN Travel Expenses
Financial Implications:
The total expenditures for mileage reimbursement for 2014-15 was approximately $61,500 at the current
rate of $0.56 per mile for the following funds: General, At Risk, Vocational, Parents as Teachers, Special
Education, Food Service, Bilingual Education, Adult Education and Professional Development. This figure
represents mileage reimbursement for approximately 110,000 miles during the course of the year. The
increased rate will result in an increased cost to the district, unless the number of miles submitted for
reimbursement by employees’ decreases during the year. The increased cost for employee mileage
reimbursement for 110,000 miles would be $1,200 for the fiscal year.
55
Recommendation:
Administration respectfully recommends that the Board of Education give final approval (A2) to set the
vehicle mileage reimbursement rate at $0.57 per mile for all miles driven for district purposes, effective July
1, 2015.
Recommended Motion:
“I move to give final approval to the administrative recommendation to set the vehicle mileage
reimbursement rate at $0.57 per mile for all miles driven for district purposes, effective July 1, 2015.”

Destruction of District Financial Records
Prepared by:
Lew Faust, Director of Business Services
Background Information:
Kansas Statute 72-5369 (Appendix A) provides guidance to Kansas school districts regarding the
timelines for retention and destruction of financial records. As noted in K.S.A 72-5369, the board
of education may, by resolution, provide for and authorize any officer, official or employee
charged with or having custody of the records to destroy said records based on the timelines as
noted in the resolution.
Current Considerations:
Annually, the district’s business office destroys original data entry records and monthly reports,
including payroll processing records, cash receipt documents and accounts payable vouchers
dating five years previous. This is done annually to provide adequate space for storage of the
current year’s records. The business office intends to destroy the data entry records for the fiscal
year ended June 30, 2010, including records from prior years, if any such records have not been
destroyed previously. For security and confidentiality purposes, these records will be shredded.
Document Resources of Manhattan, Kansas will be performing this service for the district.
District Goal:
5. The district will provide support of programs through existing and new resources.
Board of Education Policy:

Public Records
Financial Implications:
The total estimated cost of $225 will be funded by General Fund – Supplies-Accounting Office
(account #012-82515-610-01-000-00).
Recommendation:
Administration respectfully recommends that the Board of Education give final approval (A2) to
authorize Lew Faust, Director of Business Services and Board Treasurer, with the responsibility
for destruction of the original data entry records and monthly reports, as noted above, for the
fiscal year ended June 30, 2010, including records from prior years, if any such records have not
been destroyed previously.
Recommended Motion:
“I move to give final approval to the administrative recommendation to authorize Lew Faust,
Director of Business Services and Board Treasurer, with the responsibility for destruction of the
original data entry records and monthly reports, as noted above, for the fiscal year ended June
30, 2010, including records from prior years, if any such records have not been destroyed
