Comptroller DiNapoli Releases School District Audits

September 19, 2019

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

Corinth Central School District – Medicaid Reimbursements (Saratoga County)
The district lacked adequate procedures to ensure Medicaid claims were submitted and reimbursed for all eligible services provided. Auditors found claims were not submitted and reimbursed for 273 eligible services totaling $16,910. Had these services been appropriately claimed, the district could have realized revenues totaling $8,455.

North Colonie Central School District – Extra-Classroom Activity Funds (Albany County)
Student treasurers did not maintain adequate accounting records. Auditors found extra-classroom activity (ECA) clubs did not always have adequate supporting documentation for collections, including 23 of 48 deposits totaling $45,518.

REACH Academy Charter School – Cash Disbursements (Erie County)
The board has not appointed a claims auditor to audit claims before payment as required by the school’s cash disbursement policy. Cash disbursements were not properly approved prior to payment, supported or accounted for in a timely manner. In addition, school officials are using debit cards for cash disbursements.

Waverly Central School District – Financial Operations (Tioga County)
In the sample auditors reviewed, 30 claims (11 percent) totaling $73,865 were not approved by the department head and 15 claims (5 percent) totaling $69,670 were not approved by the claims auditor. In addition, the senior account clerk’s leave accrual records contained errors, and her sick leave balances exceeded the contractual maximum by 111 days.
