No delegation of transfer authority

Just came through over the Mass Association of School Committees list-serv:
A school committee may not adopt a policy permitting the school superintendent to approve budget transfers of up to $3,000. The power to transfer amounts between line items in the school operating budgets belongs exclusively to the school committee under G.L. Ch. 71 §34, and it cannot be delegated to any other municipal board or officer.
