The Downingtown Area School District’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining effective internal controls to provide reasonable assurance that the District is in compliance with certain relevant state laws, regulations, contracts, and administrative procedures.
In conducting the audit, officials obtained an understanding of the District’s internal controls, including any information technology controls, which they consider to be significant within the context of their audit. Auditors assessed whether those controls were properly designed and implemented.
Any deficiencies in internal controls identified during the audit, and determined to be significant within the context of the audit, are included in the Auditor General’s report.
For the audited period of July 1, 2013, through June 30, 2017, the audit of the Downingtown Area School District resulted in no finding.
“My school audits help ensure every available dollar of education funding is focused on students to improve their learning experience,” DePasquale said.
The Department of the Auditor General audits the records of school districts, charter schools, intermediate units, and area vocational-technical schools. The audit assessments include whether school entities received the state subsidies and reimbursements to which they were entitled, accurately managed taxpayer funds, and complied with ethics codes. The audits also determine whether teachers and administrators were properly certified for the positions they held during the audit period.
