Board gets briefed on audit

ORFORD—It appears that changes implemented over the past two years have resolved budgeting problems that led to an $800,000 deficit in 2018-2019.
Early on in the Rivendell Interstate School District’s Feb. 4 board meeting, professional auditor Tyler Paine briefed the board on the district’s finances for the year ending June 31, 2020.
In that period, the firm found new as well as recurring issues that they identified as “deficiencies” in Rivendell’s business practices.
Paine noted that thee audit of the district’s finances was the “smoothest one we’ve had this year.”
“There’s no [further] planning or consideration needed from the district at this point,” Paine said. “Any comments or suggestions have been well-received by financial administrators.”
