Lakota Earns Tenth Consecutive Auditor of State Award with Distinction

Lakota Earns Tenth Consecutive Auditor of State Award with Distinction

Lakota Local Schools has once again achieved a remarkable milestone: for the tenth consecutive year, it has been bestowed with the Auditor of State Award with Distinction. This prestigious recognition underscores the district’s unwavering commitment to financial responsibility and transparency. The award comes in the wake of the Fiscal Year 2023 financial audit period, serving as a powerful testament to Lakota’s steadfast dedication to maintaining the highest level of fiscal integrity.

In Ohio, government entities—including school districts—can attain a “clean” audit by meeting specific criteria. These criteria include timely presentation of an Annual Comprehensive Financial Report within six months of the fiscal year’s end, absence of financial issues, and no findings related to recovery, material citations, material weaknesses, significant deficiencies, single audit findings, or questioned costs. Remarkably, less than 5% of government entities throughout Ohio receive the highest award bestowed by the State Auditor. Lakota’s consistent achievement of this honor for ten consecutive years is truly commendable.
