The audit report bill is headed for the governor’s desk for signature.
The main portions of the bill affecting school boards require the department or firm performing the audit furnish a copy of the audit report to each board member by mail or electronic communication and the district – should it have an independent audit completed – publish the report on their website.
Rep. Kyle Schoenfish noted “all board members should receive” a copy of the audit and the bill ensures the department or firm completing the task will “will furnish the report to each board member.”
“We strongly believe that every school board member should have a copy of the audit and should understand what’s in the audit,” Pogany testified before the committee.
He added the Association will implement a board specific training for members to better understand and ask the necessary questions related to the audit.
“We want to make sure every school board understands they’re accountable,” Pogany said.
