School district scores excellent audit rating
By: KIMBERLY MARSELAS Review Correspondent, Staff Writer
Cocalico School District completed its 2010-2011 audit with an "excellent" report, according to public auditors who spoke at last week’s board meeting.
CPAs Jill Gilbert and Don Johnson of Lancaster-based Trout, Ebersole & Groff reported that the district’s books were in order without any findings that would require correction. The district earned an "unqualified opinion," the highest possible rating, for the second straight year.
Superintendent Bruce Sensenig said after the Nov. 21 meeting that the clean audits prove the district is operating in a "fiscally sound" manner.
At the same meeting, the board accepted bids for carpeting, furnishings, classroom equipment and electronic support for a mobile computer lab for the new wing at Denver Elementary School. The project is expected to be completed soon, with a projected move-in date sometime in January. Sensenig said the bids met the costs initially included in the overall budget for the expansion work.
The board also approved new contracts with Power School Web Hosting, the company that provides the district’s student information system; the Pennsylvania Trust, which provides actuarial services; and a part-time special educator to develop and write individual education plans for students with special needs. The district also renewed farm leases on its three tillable plots.
In personnel news, Sensenig announced that literacy coach Ann Small, who had worked at the middle and high school for 38 years, had resigned to accept a position with the Lancaster-Lebanon I.U. With the I.U., Small will lead a five-year Striving Leaders Grant, which aids literacy efforts at member districts. Sensenig said Cocalico plans to apply for a grant through the program.
Sensenig also acknowledged five school board members who were reelected to their seats earlier in November, as well as President Allen Dissinger, Vice President Kevin Eshleman and member Timothy Zimmerman for being named to the Pennsylvania School Boards Association honor roll for their length of service.
