New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced the following school district audit was issued.
The extra classroom activity (ECA) clubs did not maintain adequate records. As a result, auditors could not determine whether all money collected was accounted for, properly remitted and deposited. Other than minor exceptions, disbursements were properly supported and for legitimate purposes; however, ECA deposits were not always timely. Managing the finances of ECA activities is meant to be a learning experience for student club members. By not properly managing ECA finances, students miss this learning opportunity and district officials have little assurance that ECA funds are adequately safeguarded and properly accounted for.
