Sandusky Schools received an Auditor of the State Award with Distinction this month for a clean financial audit report, marking five consecutive years of earning the achievement.

The award indicates districts have met financial and legal requirements on federal, state and local levels.

To qualify for the Auditor of the State Award, a district must fulfill several criteria, according to the state auditor’s website:

•It must file timely financial reports with the state auditor’s office.

•Its audit report must not contain any findings for recovery, material citations, material weaknesses, significant deficiencies, single audit findings or questioned costs.

•Its management letter contains no comments related to ethics referrals, questioned costs less than $10,000, lack of timely report submission, reconciliation, failure to obtain a timely single audit, findings for recovery less than $100 or public meetings or public records.

“Sandusky Schools has always been committed to complete transparency in its finances, as well as producing the highest quality financials possible,” said Jeff Krabill, chairman of the district’s audit committee.

Several other area districts have also received a standard Auditor of the State Award since February, when the Register most recently addressed the topic.

Those districts include Bellevue Schools, Clyde-Green Springs Schools, Margaretta Schools and Vanguard-Sentinel Career and Technology Centers.

Is this the same State Auditor's office that missed the $150K theft of taxpayer monies going on in the Erie County Treasurer's office for five or more years ..... who also missed the $3 million ~ now up to 4.5 million ~ of unclaimed funds in the Erie County Clerk of Courts ..... who also missed the $23 million of unclaimed funds in Cuyahoga County?

If so, I'm duly impressed that they are applauding the Sandusky Schools financial reports.
