In any school district the salaries of all employees and officers of the board of education and all payrolls may be paid in such manner as the board may authorize. To provide money for such payment if made in cash, the president and the treasurer of the board shall, upon receipt of the proper payroll and warrant, issue checks upon the depositories payable to the treasurer of the board for the aggregate amounts stated in such payrolls. The treasurer may thereupon make payments to employees and officers in cash, or the board may provide that the sums called for by such checks, instead of being paid to the treasurer, shall be transferred to special payroll accounts established in depositories by the board upon such terms with the respective banks as to interest upon daily cash balances in said special payroll accounts, and under such other conditions as the board prescribes. In the event such special payroll accounts are established by a board, such accounts may be drawn against by check of the treasurer of the board according to such procedure as the board may prescribe. In the event a board creates a payroll account, any bond given by the depository, under section 135.18 , 135.181, or 135.182 of the Revised Code, shall also be for the protection of such special payroll account as may be deposited in said bank. The aggregate of all board deposits in a bank, including special payroll accounts as authorized in this section, must not exceed the aggregate of the bond given by the bank. The aggregate of all deposits in a bank, including special payroll accounts, shall be subject to sections 135.01 to 135.21 of the Revised Code.
