Q Does Section 7-7-43 prohibit a school district from issuing a warrant to a district employee who is indebted to the district?

A Yes. Section 7-7-43 prohibits a school district from issuing a warrant to a district employee who is indebted to the district, and allows the employee/debtor a credit on the debt. This prohibition presupposes the existence of a lawful debt to the district. (Attorney General’s Opinion to Lamar dated April 8, 2011)
