Beaufort County School District earns 19th consecutive audit with no financial findings
BLUFFTON – For the 19th consecutive year, the Beaufort County School District has earned an exemplary financial review from outside auditors.
The Greenville-based auditing firm of Elliott Davis told the Board of Education that it had found no weaknesses or deficiencies in the school district’s internal financial controls during the 2017-18 fiscal year and no findings of noncompliance with state or federal laws.
South Carolina state law requires all school districts to have their finances reviewed and analyzed each year by independent outside auditors. From May through October, a four-person team of Elliott Davis auditors reviewed the school district’s FY 2017-18 finances. Tonight, Elliott Davis presented the results of its audit to the Board of Education.
“Nineteen straight years of clean audits is a clear and strong message to our parents and taxpayers that the school district’s financial operations are run efficiently and effectively,” said Interim Superintendent Herb Berg.
