The latest financial reports for the West Hempstead school district are reliable, free of errors, according to an external auditor.
Alan Yu of Cullen & Danowski, LLP, gave his annual report on the state of West Hempstead school’s financials at Tuesday's board of education business meeting. The purpose of the external audit is to look at the financial statements and internal control on compliance. Yu said that they were able to issue an “unqualified opinion,” which is the highest assurance an independent auditor can give.
“What that means is that readers of financial statements can place reasonable reliance on your financial statements that they are free of material misstatements in both the numbers and disclosures,” he said.
