State Comptroller DiNapoli Releases School District Audits

April 16, 2021

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli today announced the following school district audits were issued.

Royalton-Hartland Central School District – Information Technology Contingency Planning (Genesee County, Niagara County and Orleans County)

The board and district officials have not developed and adopted a comprehensive written information technology (IT) contingency plan. The district pays $10,500 for central site infrastructure support, which includes a disaster recovery plan template, a key component of an IT contingency plan. Although the district paid for a template, officials did not obtain it. Without a comprehensive written IT contingency plan in place that is properly distributed to all responsible parties and periodically tested for efficacy, district officials have less assurance that employees will react quickly and effectively to maintain business continuity. As a result, important financial and other data could be lost, or suffer a disruption to operations.

Westhampton Beach Union Free School District – Extra-Classroom Activity Funds (Suffolk County)

The extra-classroom activity clubs did not maintain adequate records. Therefore, auditors could not determine whether all funds received and disbursed were properly accounted for. Deposits were not always supported by school deposit forms or accurately completed bank deposit slips and activity logs.

Wyandanch Union Free School District – Budget Review (Suffolk County)

Auditors found that the significant revenue and expenditure projections in the proposed budget are reasonable. District officials did implement the recommendations in Comptroller DiNapoli’s July 2020 budget review letter. The district's proposed budget complies with the tax levy limit because it includes a tax levy of $22,922,337, which is within the limits established by law.
