Mehlville School District receives A-plus on its financial audit

The Mehlville School District received the best possible rating on its financial audit for the fiscal year that ended June 30.

“Overall, the district received, in school terms, an A-plus,” Al Kirchhofer, a certified public accountant with Daniel Jones & Associates, told the school board last week.

In auditing terms, he added, the district received an unqualified opinion, the best opinion available. Three Daniel Jones employees spent a week on-site at the school district’s offices conducting part of the audit, which overall took the company about two months and 180 to 200 hours to complete, Kirchhofer noted.
