Evangeline School Board Had Clean Audit


EVANGELINE PARISH SCHOOL BOARD MEETING

JANUARY 15, 2014

 

    The Evangeline Parish School Board, Wednesday, received good news from its business manager Amy Lafleur.  Lafleur shared the findings of the just completed audit report on the school district’s financial records for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013. She said the auditor called it “a clean audit”. The school board’s general fund had an ending fund balance of $9.2 million dollars. The summary of the audit showed no significant deficiencies and no instances of non -compliance. The school board approved the audit report.

     In other business, Connie Bertrand,  Supervisor of the Technology Department, shared with the board the school district’s planned application for E-Rate funding for the 2014-2015 school year. E-Rate is a federal program that provides funding for technology based on the number of students who received free or reduced lunches.  Under Priority One funding, for example  email service under E-Rate will only cost $487 a month rather than the full retail price of $3250 a month and  Internet Access will only cost $2039 a month rather than $13,599.

     Also under Priority One, Wide Area Fiber Network being provided by DETEL to prepare every school with online testing will cost the school district $3567 a month rather than the total retail cost of $23,786 a month. The service should be ready in parish schools in July.

    In other action,, Superintendent of Schools Toni Hamlin announced there will be no classes on Friday because it is a staff development day. On Monday January 20, it is a school holiday for Martin Luther King day.

   Hamlin also announced that Tony Bertrand has been named acting school principal at Basile High School while Principal Georgie Courville recovers from surgery for the rest of the school year.
