The Audit Committee is made up of volunteers from the CISD
community with expertise in accounting and finance.
The Audit Committee reviews the annual audit and financial statement
reports for Carroll ISD. The audit committee also interviews the
independent auditors in regards to internal controls, management letter
recommendations, and other CISD accounting processes prior to making
recommendations to the Board of Trustees in approving the Final Audit
Report and Financial Statements.
Budget & Finance Committee
The Budget and Finance Special Committee’s mission is to ensure the needs of CISD students are met through the efficient use of district funds and the development of effective ways to increase revenues and reduce expenses. Our purpose is to understand district finances and identify potential revenue sources, cost savings and process improvements.
Short-term: Identify additional revenue sources, efficiencies and savings related to potential activity fees, optional service fees, low-enrollment classes and/or electives, booster club grant request/teacher wish-list processes, corporate matching donations/sponsorships, check writing campaign and any other additional areas.
Mid-term: Understand and evaluate the costs and benefits of district investments—Return on Investment Analysis (ROI). Areas discussed include distance learning, sick day WADA, e-learning, part-time student WADA, tuition possibilities, facility rentals, and homeschoolers.
Long-term: Evaluate the advantages/disadvantages/opportunities of creatively using I&S funds for items paid with M&O dollars and the potential for retail operations at district properties.
