Evergreen Public Schools Receives Clean Financial Audit

The Washington State Auditor's Office concludes that the district effectively safeguarded public resources

Vancouver, Wash. (May 6, 2024) – Evergreen Public Schools received a clean audit report from the Washington State Auditor's Office.

In handling the district’s finances, EPS officials adhered to district policies and relevant state laws and regulations, effectively safeguarding public resources, auditors concluded.

"We take our responsibility of being good stewards of public funds seriously," said John Boyd, Superintendent of Evergreen Public Schools. "The results of this audit show our commitment to being accountable and are a testament to our outstanding finance team.”

Conducting an audit that lasted about eight weeks, independent state auditors assessed the district's finances from September 1, 2022 to August 31, 2023. They examined such areas as payroll, accounts payable, Associated Student Body (ASB) activities, Skills Center cash receipting, use of local levy funds, compliance with supplemental contracts for enrichment activities, adherence to open public meetings and review of financial condition.

Additionally, state auditors issued clean audits for the district’s financial statements across its general, capital projects, ASB, debt service and transportation funds, along with the district’s compliance with federal grants for the period covered by the audit.

The state auditor’s office conducts annual evaluations of school districts’ finances as part of its commitment to monitoring public funds. You can access the accountability report and financial statements/federal grant compliance report on the state auditor’s website.
