    At an Oct. 19, 2009, meeting, independent auditing firm Barbacane and Thornton presented information to groups associated with the school district who raise money or spend school district money. This includes alumni associations, booster clubs, PTOs and other such organizations.

    Here are some of the questions raised. We will be answering them shortly, and we urge you to ask for clarification or to ask more questions where needed. You can address all questions to radnor@rtsd.org. Please identify the subject line as "Booster Club Question."
    • In order to hire coaches, do we have to go through the school board?
    • If students raise money, do the funds go through the student activity fund or the booster club?
    • Is it a courtesy or requirement to tell a principal about events?
    • If a fundraiser is not on school property, should the principal be involved?
