Audit Objective

Determine whether Chenango Forks Central School District (District) officials properly identified and billed tuition for nonresident students.

Key Finding

  • District officials did not adopt a clear and comprehensive nonresident admission/tuition policy. As a result, we could not determine exactly which students should have been classified as a nonresident student and should have been billed tuition. In addition, some student records contained insufficient documentation to support residency or exceptions to the policy.

Key Recommendation

  • Clarify the “Admission of Non-Resident Students” policy (Policy) to include all applicable exceptions.

District officials agreed with our recommendations and indicated they would or had already initiated corrective action.
