"The Financial Crisis Management Assessment Team is an organization created out of the passage of the AB1200 to help California’s local educational agencies fulfill their financial and management responsibilities by providing fiscal advice, management assistance, training, and other related school business services. This is the organization that outlines California ASB rules and regulations.
The Associated Student Body Accounting Manual, Desk Reference, and Fraud Prevention Guide is designed for school principals, ASB activity directors, fiscal services managers, bookkeepers, secretaries, students, and others responsible for student body activities, especially fundraising. The manual answers questions about accounting, purchasing, student stores, vending machines, clubs, and overall roles and responsibilities.
