Issaquah School District passes state audit
May 8, 2012
The state auditor gave the Issaquah School District two gold stars for the 10th year in a row.
Each year, state law calls for each school district to go through two audits — an accountability report and a financial audit report. The audit took place between Sept. 1, 2010, and Aug. 31, 2011, and, just like the previous nine, found no blemishes on Issaquah’s record.
The accountability report examines how well the district complies with its own policies and state and federal laws, such as the Open Public Meetings Act, bidding compliance and enrollment reporting. Its results were released March 30 and concluded that the district’s “internal controls were adequate to safeguard public assets.”
The financial audit report, which measures the district’s financial statements and processes using government auditing standards, was also issued March 30. In it, there were no findings of noncompliance or other serious problems.
To mark the 10-year milestone for the district, state Auditor Brian Sonntag wrote the school board a congratulatory letter.
“This accomplishment reflects the dedication of the district board and the district staff to strong oversight of operations, good internal controls and accurate financial reporting,” Sonntag wrote.
