|SUBJECT / RECOMMENDATIONS|
|Accept the State of Florida Auditor General's Report No. 2017-040, Hillsborough County School District School Board, for the Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2015 (Business Services)|
|District school boards located in Florida are required by Florida law [Section 1011.60, 1011.61, and 1011.62 Florida Statutes] to have an Independent Auditor Report express an opinion on the district's compliance with state requirements based on their examination.
This audit covered the Florida Education Finance Program Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) student enrollment and student transportation.
|• Demonstrate "best practices" in all aspects of safety: student, employee, visitor, facility, transportation, and health|
|FINANCIAL IMPACT (Budgeted: No)|
|When we are audited by the Auditor General's Office, there is not a financial impact to the school district's budget. The audit findings demonstrated a reduction to the district's weighted FTE of 45.7972, resulting in an allocation decrease of $184,644 ($141,974 applicable to district schools and $42,670 applicable to charter schools). We are now waiting on a decision from Florida Department of Education as to effect of the impact to our district.|
