Fund transfer guidance, sample resolution available for school districts


On April 7, the Minnesota Department of Education issued Commissioner Guidance for the Transfer of Funds for Emergency Executive Order 20-19, Items 21-22 to assist school districts seeking to transfer funds during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Commissioner Guidance can be found on Page 6 of MDE’s Minnesota Distance Teaching and Learning Implementation Guide and on the MSBA website.

School districts seeking to transfer funds pursuant to this order must submit (1) a Request for Fund Transfer Form; (2) a school board resolution stating that the fund transfer requested meets Executive Order 20-19 paragraph 21(c); and (3) official school board minutes documenting board approval of the funds transfer.

To assist MSBA members, the Commissioner Guidance, Request for Fund Transfer Form, and a Sample Resolution are available on the MSBA website homepage and on the MSBA COVID-19 webpage.

Please contact MSBA if questions arise.
