MCA Calls for Changes to School Board Audit Committee
January 7 Board meeting, the MCA Board of Directors passed a resolution on financial and program audits of the school system. The resolution commended the School Board for the steps that it had taken to increase its independent capability to audit school system financial and programmatic activities, including the creation of an Auditor General position. It also urged the School Board to: (1) increase the independence of its Audit Committee by adding two community members and removing school system personnel from the Audit Committee; (2) adopt audit plans that allocate substantial time and resources to four specific steps designed to improve the scope, quality and transparency of program evaluations and performance audits.
