Recommended Motion:

Staff recommends that the Board approve the Financial Audit Report for 2017-2018.


Per Education Code 41020, a report of each local educational agency audit for the preceding fiscal year shall be filed with the Marin County Office of Education, California Department of Education, and the State Controller by December 15th. Further, by January 31st of each year, the governing body of each local education agency shall review, at a public meeting, the annual audit of the local education agency for the prior year, per Education Code 41020.3.

The independent audit was performed by the accounting firm of Christy White.  The auditors expressed an unmodified (clean) opinion, which states that the District’s financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the respective financial position of the governmental activities, each major fund, and the aggregate remaining fund information of Tamalpais Union High School District, as of June 30, 2018, and the respective changes in financial position for the year then ended in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

There were no audit adjustments proposed to any funds of the District; thus, the governmental fund activity and balances remain unchanged from the District’s unaudited actual data presented in September.  In addition, there were no federal award, state award, or financial statement exception findings.

A representative from Christy White will present the report and address any questions.  The annual audit is attached.

Quick Summary / Abstract:
This is a report from the independent auditors, the accounting firm of Christy White.  They will state their opinion on review of the District’s financial statements as of June 30, 2018.
