Luis C. Orozco, certified public accountant, and staff members presented the STISD Annual Financial Report for the year ended Aug. 31, 2021, to the STISD Board of Directors during the Dec. 8 board meeting held at STISD Medical Professions.
As required by state and federal laws, each fall an independent auditor reviews the district's financial statements from the previous fiscal year. STISD follows through with any audit recommendations made.
According to the report from the fall of 2021, STISD received an "unmodified opinion," and there were no findings for the 2020-2021 school year. STISD has continued to maintain a healthy fund balance and a strong system of internal control. The district has also remained in compliance with all federal and Texas Education Agency (TEA) guidelines.
