Student organizations that are established to raise and spend money on behalf of students are called Associated Student Body organizations, or ASBs. ASB organizations and management of ASB funds represent an opportunity for students not only to raise money, but also to learn some of the principles of operating a small business and to learn leadership skills, while making a contribution to their school and fellow students.
The Associated Student Body for elementary and middle school sites in the Natomas Unified School District is centralized at the Education Center. The Accounting Technician III – ASB is responsible for processing deposits, payments and bank reconciliations for these schools, as well as verifying compliance with the laws and regulations of ASB organizations. For ASB questions, please contact Ace Ensign at by email or at 916.567.5479.
ASBs are governed by the California Education Code, Title 5 of the California Administrative Code, California Constitution, Internal Revenue Code and the Penal Code, as well as Natomas School District board policies, administrative regulations and procedures that have the effect of laws relative to how ASBs are managed and operated in the Natomas Unified School District.
Gifts and donations from the community and business entities are vital contributions to ASB. Checks should be made to the school’s ASB, and cash should be accompanied by a letter stating the donation is to be used for the school’s ASB organization. Donations to ASB are deposited into the ASB account and students decide how the funds will be used.
The ASB Manual provides guidance and detailed instructions on how to successfully follow ASB guidelines and laws. It includes district forms which should be used for all fundraisers, deposits and check requests.
