Oak Harbor schools audit comes out clean

An audit of Oak Harbor School District revealed nothing out of the ordinary.

The audit included a review of school district’s records between Sept. 1, 2012, through Aug. 31, 2013.

General auditing practice means that the Washington State Auditor’s Office did not look at every transaction, activity or area, but instead looked at areas with high risk of noncompliance, misappropriation or misuse, according to the audit summary prepared by the auditing team, led by State Auditor Troy Kelley.

Areas examined in this audit were transportation apportionment, Associated Student Body fundraisers and credit cards issued to the school district employees.

According to the audit summary, the district’s internal controls were found to be satisfactory to safeguard public assets.

Also examined was the district’s internal control over financial reporting and major programs, and no significant deficiencies or material weaknesses were found.

The school district is audited every year, and no accountability findings have been reported in the past six audits, according to the audit summary.
