The Methow Valley School District was recently notified by the Washington State Auditor’s Office that it has received a clean financial, federal, and accountability audit for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 school years.
When asked about the results, MVSD Board Chair, Dana Stromberger stated, “Speaking on behalf of the MVSD Board of Directors, we couldn’t be more pleased by the results. Consistent with what we’ve come to expect of our school district, it’s a clear reflection of the District’s stewardship of state, federal, and local funding, compliance with state and federal laws, and the policies and procedures that govern school districts.”
MVSD Vice Chair, Frank Kline chimed in stating, “In spite of the complexity associated with public school funding, I’m not surprised. We have established an exceptional business and operations team. Led by Business Manager, Sherry Sloan, we strategically invest in what we value, our students. We plan the work and work the plan, building, high quality, educational programming, enriching extracurricular activities, and services, all at no cost to students and families.” He also noted, “The results of our audit not only validate our practices, but they have an impact on our financial ratings. Our positive rates enable the district to secure the lowest (bond) rates possible, resulting in lower school-related tax rates.”
