District Passes Legislative Post Audit with Flying Colors
On July 29, the Kansas Legislative Post Audit Committee
accepted the final report from the division's 2015
Efficiency Audit of the Auburn-Washburn School
District. The report noted a number of efficiency
efforts the district has already undertaken and made
recommendations for additional actions. The
opportunity for additional savings or increased
revenue is limited.
One member of the LPA Committee recognized that the
even if all the recommendations were implemented, the
range of possible savings is only 0.3% to 0.6% of the
district's total budget. The legislator stated that,
"The school district is being run very efficiently."
