State Certifies Issaquah School District’s Sixteenth Consecutive Clean Audit

Posted on May 2, 2018

The Washington State Auditor’s Office released two reports certifying that the Issaquah School District met all financial and operational regulations and best practices last school year. This marks the District’s sixteenth consecutive year with no findings on its audits.

“I am extremely proud of our staff in the Issaquah School District,” Superintendent Ron Thiele said. “Sixteen consecutive years of clean audits show that all of our employees, from our schools to the administration office,  are not only committed to the education of all students, but also to accountability and being good stewards of public funds. It is just ingrained in our organizational culture.”

 The District is audited annually, per state law. The State Auditor’s Office  provides the District and its stakeholders two reports.  The first, the Accountability Report, examines how well the District complies with its own policies and state and federal laws such as the Open Public Meetings Act, bidding compliance, and enrollment reporting. The second, the Financial/Federal Audit Report, measures the District’s financial statements and processes against the Government Auditing Standards; in essence, it determines how accurate and valid the Districts’ financial statements are as well as if the federal funds provided are adequately safeguarded.
