Good Marks for East Hampton

Thu, 10/07/2021 - 11:38

The East Hampton School District has passed its annual audit with flying colors. During a school board meeting on Tuesday, its auditor, Jeffrey Jones of the EFPR Group, said the district had earned an "unmodified opinion," the best possible outcome.

The only issue was the size of the district's budget surplus from last year, which exceeded the state limit of 4 percent of the previous year's budget. East Hampton's was 4.75 percent. School officials have attributed this overage to the need to hang on to money in the uncertain financial climate that the Covid-19 pandemic has created.

Over all, Mr. Jones said, there were "no material weaknesses or significant deficiencies. . . . The district appears to be in relatively good health."
