The purpose of the Internal Audit function is to provide independent, objective assurance and consultation designed to add value and improve the District’s operations.  It helps the District accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management control and governance processes.

Internal Audit shall have access to all of the District’s records, facilities, properties and personnel relevant to the department or system under review, and is free to review and appraise policies, plans, procedures and records as deemed necessary.  Internal Audit shall use discretion in the review of the records and assume the confidentiality of all matters that arise.

Internal Audit shall have no direct responsibility or authority over financial, compliance or operational issues that may be subject to review.  The independence of the internal audit function shall not be deemed adversely affected by determining recommending standards of control to be applied to the development of the departments, systems and procedures being reviewed.

We serve the community of the District which encompasses student, parents, taxpayers, the Board of Trustees, and the employees.

Internal Audit reports functionally to the Board of Trustees and administratively to the Superintendent.
