The Board heard from the District’s Chief Financial Officer, Michael Frances and a representative from Kein Hall CPAs of Aurora regarding the Fiscal Year 2019 Financial Audit.  Each year the District engages an independent accounting firm to perform an audit of the District’s financial records in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards and the standards applicable to financial audits contained in Governmental Auditing Standards. Klein Hall CPAs of Aurora have performed this year’s audit and have found that our financial records correctly represent the District’s financial position, otherwise known as an unqualified opinion.

Hugh Boger, Principal at Scott Elementary School presented the School Improvement Plan to the Board.  

The Board discussed without action the 2019 Tax Levy determination.  Annually the District sets a tax levy which provides the District with over 85% of its total revenue. The setting of the annual tax levy is governed by the Truth in Taxation Law, School Code, Property Tax Code, and Property Tax Extension Limits Law (PTELL). Each of these laws has specific requirements that must be followed.
