A recent financial audit of the Kings Local School District by the Auditor of State’s office has returned a clean audit report. The Kings Local School District’s excellent record keeping has earned it the Auditor of State Award.

The Auditor of State Award is presented to local governments and school districts upon the completion of a financial audit. To receive the award, entities must meet the criteria of a “clean” audit report such as filing on time, an audit that does not contain any findings for recovery, material citations, material weaknesses, significant deficiencies, Single Audit findings, or questioned costs.

The Auditor of State’s office is responsible for auditing more than 5,800 state and local government agencies. Under the direction of Auditor Yost, the office also provides financial services to local governments, investigates and prevents fraud in public agencies and promotes transparency in government.

“Truly a team effort,” said Kings Treasurer, Shaun Bevan. “Everybody does a great job. We have a great team and they work hard every day.” The Kings Treasurer’s Office also received this award in 2014.
