Berkeley County School District (BCSD) has again received the highest financial opinion following its annual independent review of its fiscal practices. The superior findings, known as an “unmodified audit” in accounting terms, indicate the district’s sound financial position and acknowledge the appropriate monetary practices in place to maintain these standards.
Audit results were announced at the regular Board meeting on January 10 by representatives from the certified public accounting firm of Greene, Finney, and Horton, LLC, the independent agency which conducted the audit. The findings were made using financial information from the 2016 fiscal year ending on June 30, 2016. The report highlighted the school system’s effective internal controls, financial statements, and its preparation and managing of the budget.
