Any city, local, or exempted village board of education may by resolution set aside each year from the general fund a sum not to exceed two dollars for each child enrolled in the district, or twenty thousand dollars, whichever is greater. Any educational service center governing board may by resolution set aside each year from the educational service center fund a sum not to exceed twenty thousand dollars. The amount set aside shall be placed in a fund known as the "service fund," which shall be used only in paying the expenses of members of such boards of education and educational service center governing boards actually incurred in the performance of their duties, or in paying the expenses of members-to-be of such boards actually incurred in training and orientation to the performance of their duties from the date of election or appointment to the date of administration of the oath of office. Such payments shall be made only in such amount as may be approved by the board on statement of the several members or members-to-be furnished at the next succeeding regular meeting of such board. No board shall appropriate or expend a sum greater than sixty thousand dollars in any one school year from such service fund.
