School District earns clean audit

1 min read

For the 19th consecutive year, the Beaufort County School District has earned an exemplary financial review from outside auditors.

The Greenville-based auditing firm of Elliott Davis told the Board of Education that it had found no weaknesses or deficiencies in the school district’s internal financial controls during the 2017-18 fiscal year and no findings of noncompliance with state or federal laws, the district announced in a release.

South Carolina state law requires all school districts to have their finances reviewed and analyzed each year by independent outside auditors. From May through October, a four-person team of Elliott Davis auditors reviewed the school district’s FY 2017-18 finances. 

“Nineteen straight years of clean audits is a clear and strong message to our parents and taxpayers that the school district’s financial operations are run efficiently and effectively,” said Interim Superintendent Herb Berg.
