Unit 2 Board Talks Audit, Technology

At its recent meeting, the Bond County Community Unit 2 School Board accepted a proposal from the accounting firm of Mose, Yockey, Brown and Kull to conduct the district’s audit for the 2014-15 fiscal year.

The cost is not to exceed $9,550 for the annual audit and an additional $3,700 to complete the required single audit report.

The Shelbyville firm has done Unit 2’s audits in recent years.

The board members approved the district’s E-Rate plan for the next school year. The plan pertains to Internet services at schools and some phone service. The federal E-Plan program is funded through taxes collected from telecommunication companies. The money is then redistributed to support telecommunications in schools, colleges and libraries.

Meg File, district technology coordinator, reported that the district can receive funding for infrastructure, with Unit 2’s cost 20 cents per dollar. The district will be paying about $21,000 from the education fund.

The school board passed the annual prevailing wage resolution and agreed to destroy the audio tapes of regular and special executive session meetings prior to December of 2013, as allowed in the Local Records Act.
