The Audit Challenge: Updates and New Considerations

About the Workshop

We are now in the sixth and final year of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) implementation and local educational agencies (LEAs) are in the fifth year of the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). High expectations and accountability are paramount under the LCFF, so how do you determine the impact on the operations of the LEA related to the annual audit? A finding of noncompliance can result in an LEA losing a significant amount of revenue. Knowledge and preparation could be the key to resolving issues early. This workshop incorporates need-to-know, up-to-date information on all of these changes and sound advice on internal controls and fraud prevention.

Every year the Audit Regulations (Regulations) are updated to add new programs based on newly enacted legislation or audit findings identi-fied through the submission of audit reports to the State Controller’s Office.

The Audit Challenge workshop will provide business administrators and staff with information and best practices to manage their annual audits easily and successfully. We will include up-to-date information on all of the changes for the current 2018-19 Regulations and the proposed changes for 2019-20 Regulations. Audit preparation tips and potential compliance traps will be shared in areas that include:

  • Proposition 51 (Bond Audits)
  • School of Choice
  • Comprehensive School Safety Plans
  • Independent Study Master Agreements
  • Form CEA (Minimum Classroom Compensation)
  • Special Education Maintenance of Effort
  • Charter Schools (for both charter schools and oversight agencies)
  • Time Accounting
