The Audit Committee and Financial Statements

School district finances are subject to internal and external auditing, which promote both accountability and transparency. The Minisink Valley Central School District Audit Committee, which is comprised of Board members and community members, is charged with providing independent advice, assistance, and recommendations to the board in the oversight of the internal and external audit functions. 

Each year, in accordance with New York State regulations, an independent auditor conducts a review of the district's financial statements. After the audit is completed, it is reviewed by the Audit Committee and accepted by the Board. This typically takes place in the fall. View the most recent audited financial statements: AUDIT REPORT FOR THE YEAR ENDED JUNE 30, 2018. (Reports for 2017 and 2016 are available in the "Budget Archives" section of this page.)
