Employees traveling on behalf of the school district and performing approved school district business may be reimbursed for their actual and necessary expenses. Actual and necessary travel expenses will include, but not be limited to, transportation and/or mileage costs, lodging expenses, meal expenses, and registration costs. Travel within the school district and outside of the school district must be pre-approved by the superintendent [or designee]. Pre-approval will include an evaluation of the necessity of the travel, the reason for the travel, and an estimate of the cost of the travel to qualify as approved school district business.
All personnel of the school district are encouraged to use the district credit card for travel expenses authorized by the superintendent [or designee] and described in policies 803.1, 803.1-R1, 803.1-R2, 803.3, 803.3-R, and 803.10-R for travel incurred under the policies of the Board of Directors. Travel expenses incurred without the use of a district credit card may be reimbursed according to administrative regulations.
All personnel will be reimbursed for any travel from their offices while in the performance of their assigned duties at the mileage rate per mile as set by the State of Iowa. This does not include travel to and from work and home, but it does include any required travel expenses between district facilities.
