State audit of Duanesburg schools finds no problems
DUANESBURG The Duanesburg Central School District announced it has received a favorable audit from the state Comptroller’s Office.
The Comptroller’s Office randomly selected the district to examine its practices and procedures for paying retiring employees for unused sick time, the district said in a news release.
“District officials have established adequate internal controls over separation payments,” reads a news release from the Comptroller’s Office. “When an employee leaves district service, the board approves the retirement or resignation, and the payroll clerk reviews leave records and produces an attendance report showing leave accrual balances.”
The audit, released June 27, “puts a stamp of approval on the district’s financial practices,” Duanesburg Superintendent Chris Crowley said.
The audit examined payments from July 1, 2012, through Nov. 30, 2013 and made no recommendations, the district noted.
