Report Summary

  • On December 18, 2003, the Collier County School Board voted to implement the action plans in the Best Financial Management Practices Review (OPPAGA Report No. 03-53) published in October 2003. OPPAGA developed these action plans to help the Collier County School District implement the best practices within two years, which would make the district eligible to receive the Seal of Best Financial Management from the State Board of Education.
  • Since October 2003, the district fully implemented 19 and partially implemented 62 of the 85 action plans contained in the original OPPAGA report. Thus, while the district made progress on 95% (81 of 85) of the action plans, it currently is not eligib
  • By implementing the remaining action plans, the Collier County School District will be able to further improve and streamline its management, increase its efficiency and effectiveness, and reduce its costs.
  • OPPAGA will review the implementation status of action plans again in January 2006 based on the district's next status report.
