FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

 

 

CONTROLS OVER COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS AND REGULATIONS

 

††††††† The Illinois School Code (105 ILCS 5/3-14.11) requires the Regional Superintendent to examine at least once each year all books, accounts, and vouchers of every school treasurer in his educational service region, and if he finds any irregularities in them, to report them at once, as directed by the School Code.

 

†††††††† The Regional Office did not examine at least once each year all books, accounts, and vouchers of every school treasurer in the educational service region.Regional Office officials noted they believe the mandate is outdated and that they are satisfying the intent of the statute by other reviews they undertake.This mandate has existed in its current form since at least 1953. (Finding 05-1, pages 13-14)

 

††††††††† The Regional Office accepted the recommendation to comply with the statutory requirement, and if it believes the mandate is obsolete, to seek legislative action to revise the statute accordingly.†††††††††††††

 

 

†††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††AUDITORSí OPINION

 

†††††† Our auditors state the Regional Office of Education #43ís financial statements as of June 30, 2005 are fairly presented in all material respects.
