CCISD Releases Fiscal Year 2017 Audit Findings
Posted on 02/02/2018

The Clear Creek Independent School District released the financial statement audit and federal single audit findings for the 2017 fiscal year. CCISD was given an “unmodified opinion,” which is the highest level of assurance that can be given on a set of financial statements.

“We were pleased to hear the District audit was clean, transparent and with no finding of error,” said Paul McLarty, Deputy Superintendent of Business and Support Services. “In Clear Creek ISD, we pride ourselves on financial transparency and accountability and the financial services department, directed by Jeff Kohlenberg, is committed to these important principles every day.”

The District’s financial statements were audited by Whitley Penn, LLP, a firm of licensed certified public accountants. The goal of the independent audit is to provide reasonable assurance that the financial statements of the District for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2017, are free of material misstatement. The independent audit involves examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements; assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management; and evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. The independent auditors concluded, based upon the audit, that there was a reasonable basis for rendering an unmodified opinion that the District’s financial statements for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2017, are fairly presented in conformity with Government Auditing Standards.

The independent audit of the financial statements is part of a broader, federally-mandated “Single Audit” designed to meet the special needs of federal grantor agencies. The standards governing Single Audit engagements require the independent auditor to report not only on the fair presentation of the financial statements, but also on the audited government’s internal controls and compliance with legal requirements, with special emphasis on internal controls and legal requirements involving the administration of federal awards.

The audit was conducted in accordance with Government Auditing Standards.
