Eastern Carver County Schools' commitment to transparency and being good stewards of taxpayer funds was recognized yet again at the December 6 school board meeting. Our district financial audit, which happens on an annual basis, is again a testament to the strength of our district’s financial operation. As has been the case for many years, CliftonLarsonAllen, who conducted the audit, gave the district a “clean” opinion, with no compliance issues. This is the highest standard a school district can achieve as a result of an audit. The CliftonLarsonAllen team complimented the district’s finance staff on their responsiveness and conscientiousness throughout the process and high level of financial information made available to the public.
The agency also performed an audit of the district’s use of federal COVID funding. Given the uniqueness of the funding, it is not uncommon for an auditor to identify minor issues but ECCS was given a clean audit for its use of these funds as well.
District financial information is always available on the Finance website.
