(A) At the time of the appointment or designation of the term of office of the treasurer, subject to division (B) of this section, the board of education of each local, exempted village, or city school district shall fix the compensation of its treasurer, which shall be paid from the general fund of the district. No order for payment of the salary of the treasurer of a local, exempted village, or city school district, other than an island school district, shall be drawn until the treasurer presents to the district board evidence that the treasurer either holds a valid license issued under section 3301.074 of the Revised Code or is an otherwise qualified treasurer, as defined in division (B) of section 3313.22 of the Revised Code. A governing board of an educational service center which chooses to act as the governing board of the educational service center pursuant to division (D) of section 135.01 of the Revised Code shall fix the compensation of its treasurer and pay its treasurer in the manner prescribed in the section for local, exempted village, and city school districts.
(B) The compensation of the treasurer may be increased or decreased during the treasurer's term of office, provided any decrease is a part of a uniform plan affecting salaries of all employees of the district.
(C) The board may establish vacation leave for its treasurer. Upon the treasurer's separation from employment, the board may provide compensation at the treasurer's current rate of pay for all lawfully accrued and unused vacation leave to the treasurer's credit at the time of separation, not to exceed the amount accrued during the three years before the date of separation. In case of the death of a treasurer, unused vacation leave that the board would have paid to the treasurer upon separation shall be paid in accordance with section 2113.04 of the Revised Code or to the treasurer's estate.
