The Marceline R-5 Board of Education met in regular session Monday night at the District’s Central Office with all members present. The top news item from this meeting was the report of the District’s audit.
John W. Gillum presented the Board the results of his office’s audit. Gillum reported on some of the details that the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) looks for in an audit, and noted that the District is well above the standards DESE sets to be considered a “troubled” District financially.
Gillum futher commended the District for taking good care with their funds, and maintaining more-than-adequate fund balances. He further reported that all statements in the audit could be proven to DESE if needed.
