KDE engaged the Auditor of Public Accounts (APA) to review the districts’ FY2014 audit reports for technical compliance and adherence to reporting standards. The summary results from its review can be found in the Independent Accountant’s Report on Applying Agreed-Upon Procedures to the Kentucky Department of Education, A-133 Desk Reviews for the Fiscal Year Ending June 30, 2014 Audit Reports located on APA’s web site at: http://apps.auditor.ky.gov/Public/Audit_Reports/Archive/2014kydeptofeducationa-133deskreviewsaup.pdf
Districts and their auditors were sent the detailed results of the FY2014 desk reviews. Auditors were required to correct any audit report classified as technically deficient or unacceptable and reissue the audit report. Request for copies of the detailed results of the FY2014 desk reviews may be obtained by contacting the below KDE representatives.
The Kentucky school districts’ FY2012 - FY2015 Audit Reports are located below under the "+Title: Financial Audits" section.
