Board Policies Governing Financial Practices
The Board of Education has adopted several Board Policies that guide the District in its financial practices.
Adopted District Budget
The Adopted Budget represents the District's financial plan for the fiscal year. The District's budget plan is based on the District's Local Control Accountability Plan. The Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) examines and certifies the District's budget annually and its LCAP.
Approved Local Control Accountability Plan
The Approved LCAP outlines the District's goals, actual actions for the prior year, and planned actions for the budget year. The District's LCAP guides the District in its budget planning.
Unaudited Financial Reports
The Unaudited Financial Report provides the actual financial reports for the prior year. The unaudited actuals is a report of activities in all District funds for the fiscal year. The report includes all sources of revenues, prior year carry over balances and expenditures by type or classification. The financial reports are submitted to the District's independent audit firm for auditing purposes.
Audited Financial Statements
Annually, the District is required to undergo an independent audit of its financial and governmental activities, statements, and accounting information in accordance with the Government Auditing Standards and generally accepted accounting principles. the District's Annual Financial Statements, as prepared by an independent audit firm, provide accountability and transparency of the District's actual expenditures in support of its LCAP goals and action steps, as well as compliance with state and federal laws pertaining to K-12 Education and governmental accounting. For the past 10 years the District has received unmodified certifications, the highest ranking available, and for the past five fiscal years no findings were reported. The term "no findings" means that the independent auditor found no material deficiencies in the District's financial statements, and that no corrections to the information, practices, or the reports are needed in accordance with state and federal accounting standards and laws.
Interim Financial Reports
The District prepares two interim financial reports annually, one as of October 31st and the other as of January 31st. These reports along with updated projections for three years are presented to the Board of Education for their review, discussion, and approval.
