Audit of Struthers schools finds minor records lapse


STRUTHERS -- Struthers School District needs to tidy up its bookkeeping surrounding fund-raisers and student activities, a state audit says.
The audit, released today, found no glaring deficiencies and no findings for recovery of money.
However, the district was advised to complete and approve required forms for student activity groups, such as items purchased and total cost of items paid, which wasn't always done. The state also wants price listings retained for fund-raisers.
Impairs monitoring: Without those, management's ability to monitor and account for fund-raiser financial activity is impaired.
Aside from these findings, the auditor said the district is a low-risk auditee.
Superintendent Sandi DiBacco said the district hired a new student activities secretary last September and doesn't foresee the same problems next year.
"Frankly, we asked the auditors to take a look at it," she said.
