Associated Student Body


NOTE: As of May 2017 the content of this workshop has been verified as current (we periodically review our online workshops to ensure relevancy and applicability to current requirements and practices).

The number one area for findings in an audit report are those in the area of Associated Student Body (ASB). It is critical that district -and site- level staff receive training in this area on a regular basis to ensure that the district, as well as the employees, are being protected.

This online format will allow school agencies to build capacity within their organizations by expanding the number of employees that receive training who are involved in the handling of ASB funds.

This workshop will allow you and your district staff in the business office and at school sites to be able to view the workshop from your office without any travel.

This workshop provides all of the information necessary to enable school agencies to establish ASB Accounts, including business practices that should be followed and monitored and the roles and responsibilities of those involved.

Michele Huntoon, CPA, and Lewis Wiley, Jr., lead the discussions on ASB from the establishment of the organization to accounting and reporting, good business practices, and those areas to avoid or identify when problems exist.


  • Determining the structure—Organized vs. Unorganized
  • Discussion of laws and regulations, including food sales
