School support organizations
Let us help you be successful
Communications & Engagement provides assistance to schools and school support organizations (SSOs), such as parent-teacher organizations (PTOs) and booster clubs. Here's some information on establishing your organization, obtaining an tax identification number, submitting required filings, handling your finances and obtaining Governing Board approval for indemnification.
SSOs are separate legal entities and must obtain their own tax identification number (EIN) from the IRS.
Before you begin the process to obtain your EIN, you need to determine who will be the responsible party.
When your responsible party changes, remember to let the IRS know by submitting the required form.
Governing board approval
MUST BE COMPLETED EACH SCHOOL YEAR
For an organization and its officers to be included as an indemnitee for the sake of liability, the organization must be in good standing with the district. An organization is not considered in good standing if it fails to provide the district with all updated records and financial information within the time period prescribed by the Superintendent as noted in Policy BHE.
