The Olentangy Local School District has extended its streak of excellent financial record keeping by earning its sixth consecutive Auditor of State Award with Distinction. A representative with state auditor's office presented District Treasurer Emily Hatfield with the prestigious award during the March 15, 2018 Olentangy Local Schools Board of Education meeting.
The Auditor of State Award is given to local governments and school districts upon completion of a financial audit. Entities that receive the award must meet several criteria, including incurring no findings for recovery, material citations or material weaknesses. The state audits about 5,700 local governments and public schools every year and only about 5 percent receive the award.
Olentangy has earned the award for six consecutive years and 11 times overall.
