Changes to Ohio School District Treasurer Liability and Payment Procedures

    View Author March 2019

    Effective March 20, 2019, Ohio school treasurers will no longer be subject to strict liability for a loss of public funds. Ohio HB 491 changes the circumstances under which school treasurers are liable for a loss of public funds and under which such loss may be considered a violation of a treasurer’s professional duties. It also modifies procedures that schools, including superintendents and treasurers, must follow to pay teachers.
