Each school district shall submit such reports and statements as may be required by the state board. The state board shall design, revise and direct the use of accounting records and fiscal procedures and prescribe uniform classifications for receipts and expenditures for all school districts. The reporting system shall include all funds held by a school district regardless of the source of the moneys held in such funds, including, but not limited to, all funds funded by fees or other sources of revenue not derived from tax levies. The state board shall prescribe the necessary forms to be used by school districts in connection with such uniform reporting system.

(d) The reporting system developed by the state board shall be developed in such a manner that allows school districts to record and report any information required by state or federal law.
