Members of the Board shall serve without compensation.  However, as permitted by law, Board members may receive mileage to and from Board meetings at a rate established by the Board.  Additionally, the Board may pay travel expenses for members attending meetings or performing Board business.  The mileage rate in both instances shall not exceed the maximum allowed by law for state employees.

Travel expenses, including room and meal expenses may be reimbursed either on the district per diem rate for employees or actual expenses as authorized by the Board.  Receipts shall accompany claims for actual expense reimbursement.

The Board shall provide liability insurance coverage for its members in order to protect them from financial loss arising from claims filed against them while performing their duties as a school board.
