The Christian County School Board approved the fiscal year 2017-18 audit report at Thursday’s meeting and heard the nurses’ report for the first nine weeks of school.
Anna Gentry of Duiguid, Gentry and Associates gave the report and says they gave it a ‘clean’ opinion, which is the type of opinion one would want on their audit.
She said the school district does well at remaining in budget throughout the year and that schools continue to do well at making sure paperwork involving spending is reported completely and accurately.
Meanwhile, Christian County Public School System Head Nurse Megan Kidd says the district nurses had approximately 17,200 student visits during the first nine weeks and are responsible for many medications and healthcare.
The board also heard an instructional update presentation that focused on what the district is doing to close the achievement gaps in specific groups, such as English learners, students with disabilities and gifted and talented. Each group is getting specific instruction programs, including a gifted and talented traveling lab on a refurbished bus that cost $58,000 in state gifted and talented grant funding.
