At Monday’s Mulberry Grove Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Steve Phillips reported the recent audit report went well. The report was better than last year in every category. Last year the district was listed as “In Review” which is the second highest category. This year the district is at the “Recognition” level, the highest level possible. Phillips said the auditors were very complimentary.
The financial report shows fund balances are good with general state aid coming in regularly. The district received two categorical state aid payments for transportation and special education, one for last year and the first payment for this fiscal year.
