State Auditor Report Reflects Strong Financial Management at Hockinson School District - 06/04/24

Hockinson School District has achieved a clean financial audit report from the Washington State Auditor’s Office again this year, maintaining a longstanding tradition of strong financial management in the district. The report indicates compliance with federal and state requirements within Hockinson School District for the reporting period from September 2022 to August 2023.

The Washington State Auditor conducts an audit of school districts across the state every year. Aaron Villanueva, Director of Business Services at Hockinson School District, worked closely with the audit team as they conducted a thorough review of the district’s use of public funds. The report was published on May 14, 2024.

“We know that our community has high expectations for our district. One of those expectations relates to financial integrity and frugality. This audit report shows that we’re checking all the boxes when it comes to financial responsibility,” said Steve Marshall, Superintendent of Hockinson School District.

“The annual state audit is important for community transparency. Our community trusts us with public funds, and this report helps to keep the community informed about their use,” said Villanueva.

Hockinson School District will continue its commitment to transparency and accountability as it looks ahead to the new school year. The positive results from the most recent audit reflect the district’s prudent financial management and effective use of federal funds to support educational programs.
