About the Workshop

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 identified 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 2019–20 Regulations and the proposed changes for 2020–21 Regulations. Audit preparation tips and potential compliance traps will be shared in areas that include:

  • Local Control Funding Formula/Local Control and Accountability Plan
  • Proposition 51 (Bond Audits)
  • 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
  • Common Associated Student Body findings

Who Should Attend?

This workshop will be most beneficial for anyone involved in the audit process, including, but not limited to, assistant superintendents for business, fiscal services directors, program administrators, and school district auditors.
