Conference Forms

Reminder To Staff

These are not new rules, but procedures we have been following since 2008.


Since 2008 the IRS has been auditing school corporations throughout the State of Indiana. We have been informed the IRS will, no doubt, be visiting our school. We are trying to follow the IRS guidelines, as well as the warnings from the schools that have already been audited.

As we compare our processes with the IRS regulations, we have discovered an IRS ruling involving the reimbursement of meals. Reimbursement of meal expenses are only allowed if the trip is overnight or long enough that you need to stop for sleep or rest to properly perform your duties.

Plymouth Community School Corporation will not reimburse employees for meal expenses incurred for a day-trip conference, seminar, etc. However, we will continue to reimburse mileage for the day-trips.


Duty To Report

Should you become aware of possible abuse or neglect outside of school hours, you will need to contact the DCS hotline yourself. Call 1-800-800-5556.
