If a district desires a FUND/SOF other than 2000 to separate expenditures by fund source for whatever reason for revenues listed above, then that source must be in range 2100-2199. Expenditures for all above revenue to be reported to the legislature will be pulled from funds 1000; 1100-1199; 2000; 2100-2199. (Example: If a district gives each campus a source of fund for budgeting purposes, then those FUND/SOFs would have to be in range 2100-2199. A transfer would be made from fund 2000 to sources 2100 to 2199 to zero out negative balances. Revenue will not be receipted in funds 2100-2199.)
Transfers allowed from fund 2000 to salary fund 1000.

Transfers allowed from funds 2100-2199 to funds 1100-1199.
