This study aimed to investigate one of the policies of the Indonesian government in helping poor people to obtain an education through BOS (Indonesian: Bantuan Operasional Sekolah/the School Operational Assistance Funds Program). This program had raised students and student guardians suspicion due to the lack of transparent management. This study was conducted at two schools, the State High School SMPN 1 and SMPN Satap1, using a qualitative approach with descriptive techniques. The results indicated that community involvement in the management of BOS funds was quite effective. The management was in the form of direct involvement in school development meetings, preparation of RKAS (Rencana Kerja Anggaran Sekolah/School Activity and Budget Plans), and school committee meetings. Through the BOS meeting, the managers and those responsible for the BOS funds were appointed in a team which included the school principal, treasurer, teacher, and school committee. Disbursement of BOS funds was done every three months through the regional bank directly to schools for operational financing. The use of BOS funds always referred to the RKAS and required continuous supervision.
