The Forsyth County school system’s finances are in order, according to an annual audit.
The audit, performed by the firm Mauldin & Jenkins, found that the system’s financial statements “present fairly, in all material respects, the respective financial position of the government activities, each major fund and the aggregate remaining fund information.”
Adam Frayley, engagement partner with the firm, presented the results to the Board of Education during its meeting Thursday.
The system’s financial director, Dan Jones, said in addition to the clean audit, the system also is frugal with the money it receives. Just 15 of the state’s 181 school systems spend less per student than Forsyth.
Jones added that the system also gets less help from the state and federal governments. Only nine school systems get less money from Georgia, and just one system gets less federal support.
