Report 05-43, August 2005

Report Summary

  • On December 17, 2002, the Osceola County School Board voted to implement the action plans in the Best Financial Management Practices Review (OPPAGA Report No. 02-45) published in August 2002. OPPAGA developed these action plans to help the Osceola 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 August 2002, the district has made progress on implementing all 64 action plans contained in the original OPPAGA report. The district has fully implemented 42 (66%) of the 64 action plans and partially implemented 22 (34%) remaining action plans
  • By implementing the remaining action plans, the Osceola County School District will be able to further improve and streamline its management, increase its efficiency and effectiveness, and reduce its costs.
