Audit resultsUpon review of Mehlville School District’s finances for the 2023 fiscal year, auditors from Daniel Jones and Associates issued the district’s accounting practices its highest marks, an unmodified opinion, or clean audit.

“The first opinion is on the district’s financial statements, in which we issued an unmodified opinion,” said Desi Kirchhofer, lead auditor for Daniel Jones and Associates. “This means the audit was a clean audit. That is the best opinion that a district can receive and that we can issue.”

“The second opinion we issued is in regards to the district’s compliance with the requirements of Missouri’s laws and regulations regarding budgetary and disbursement procedures, accurate disclosure by the district’s records of attendance and average daily transportation, and other requirements as listed on the schedule of selected statistics. We found the district to be in compliance with state requirements relating to attendance, transportation and these budgetary procedures,” Kirchhofer said.

Additionally, the auditors issued an unmodified opinion of the district’s compliance with federal awards, the highest opinion a district can receive.

The audit report was presented to the Mehlville Board of Education on Nov. 16, 2023. The complete report can be viewed on the board meeting agenda.
