Schweich Announces Audit of Lee's Summit School District
February 15, 2013
JEFFERSON CITY (Feb. 15, 2013) State Auditor Tom Schweich announced today that his office has started an audit of the Lee's Summit school district. State law gives the auditor the authority to audit public and charter schools in Missouri.
Persons who would like to provide information during the audit process of the Lee's Summit school district are encouraged to contact the State Auditor's office at 800-347-8597 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
R-7 School District made the following statement in an email release.
During January, Lee's Summit R-7 officials were informed that the district is among several Missouri school districts participating in an audit during 2013 through the State Auditor's Office. Lee's Summit R-7 was selected randomly by the state for the audit. The selection is not based on petitions from citizens or concerns about the district as is sometimes the case when the Auditor's Office reviews school districts or other government agencies.
The Feb. 14 Board of Education meeting is scheduled to include a report from the Auditor's Office. State officials emphasized that the audit is being conducted at no cost to the school district. Auditors from Jefferson City will be working in the district with the audit expected to take several months to complete although it could be a full year before the complete audit report is issued.
The audit will include interviews, surveys and field work and begins in mid February.
