School Internal Accounts Activity Funds Audit Report for Fiscal Year 2016/2017 (Auditing Services Department)
In accordance with the District Audit Plan and State Board of Education Rule 6A-1.087(2), the Auditing Services Department has audited the School Activity Funds for Fiscal Year 2016/2017.

Audits for the 244 school sites with internal accounts were conducted during the 2017/2018 school year.  In the opinion of the Auditing Services Department, financial and operational management of the School Activity Funds is satisfactory and generally in compliance with statutes, regulations, and School Board policies, with specific exceptions noted.

Summary of Results:
  • Exemplary audits          99 school sites or 41 percent
  • Satisfactory audits        137 school sites or 56 percent
  • Needs Improvement      7 school sites or 3 percent
  • Unsatisfactory audits     1 school site or less than 1 percent
Please note: 39 school sites have received an exemplary rating for more than five consecutive years.  School sites with unsatisfactory ratings submitted a corrective action plan to their Area Superintendent. The majority of unsatisfactory ratings were related to new or inexperienced personnel. To assist them, increased training, peer mentoring, Area Superintendent involvement, and a review of personnel assignments were implemented.
• Establish a strong foundation of financial stewardship
These audits are conducted as part of the district’s Board-approved Annual Audit plan and are budgeted as part of the Auditing Service Department’s General Fund budget.
