State Issues 17th Consecutive Clean Audit Report for Issaquah School District

Posted on April 12, 2019

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 17th consecutive year with no findings on its audits.

“Seventeen consecutive years of clean audits demonstrate that our entire staff is committed not only to the education of all students, but also to fiscal accountability,” said Superintendent Ron Thiele. “Being good stewards of public funds is an integral part of our organizational culture and I am extremely proud of our staff in the Issaquah School District.”

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.
