Comptroller DiNapoli Releases School Audits

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced his office completed audits of the Middleburgh Central School District and Tapestry Charter School.

“My office’s audits of school districts, charter schools and BOCES help schools improve their financial management practices,” DiNapoli said. “These audits are tools for schools to make sure proper policies and procedures are in place to protect taxpayer dollars and provide students with the best possible education.”

Middleburgh Central School District – Financial Condition (Schoharie County)
Budgeting decisions over the last several years have made the district susceptible to fiscal stress. The district is relying on surplus funds to finance operations and is close to depleting those funds. Additionally, district officials did not update the district’s long-term financial plan to address how they will fund the budgets without the continued use of fund balance.

Tapestry Charter School – Internal Controls Over Credit and Debit Cards (Erie County)
While the school’s credit card policy adequately addresses many control procedures, certain additional controls should be considered. For example, the policy does not limit the number of credit cards to be issued, address to whom the cards may be issued or define how many credit card accounts may be established.
