Progress Report: Volusia County School District Making Progress, But Not Yet Eligible for the State's Seal of Best Financial Management

Report 05-52, November 2005




Report Summary

  • On January 27, 2004, the Volusia County School Board voted to implement the action plans in the Best Financial Management Practices Review (OPPAGA Report No. 03-59) published in October 2003. OPPAGA developed these action plans to help the Volusia 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 has fully implemented 10 and partially implemented 4 of the 14 action plans contained in the original OPPAGA report. Thus, while the district has made progress on all of the action plans, it currently is not eligible for a Seal of Best Financial Management.
  • OPPAGA will again review the implementation status of action plans based on the district's next status report.
