Board of Education and Purchasing Policies
At DPS, we prioritize spending our budget resources to support our Shared Core Value of Students First. We expect all team members to uphold our priorities by complying with the Board of Education Policies.
Board Policies of Food Purchases
The Board Policy on food puchases was updated in 2018. For all food purchases the Food Documentation Form must be attached to the PCard transaction in the new Employee Space or when submitting a reimbursment request form. If seeking an exception to the updated food policy the Food Approval Form must also be attached. The approval form must be completed and signed by the Principal or Executive Director and the appropriate Regional Superintendent or Senior Leadership Cabinet Member prior to purchase. For more information please refer to the Food Purchasing Policy FAQ. (NOTE: The forms are documents in the Google Drive. Click the download button in the top right corner to create a fillable PDF.)
