Audit Committee

How it works and purpose:

The Audit Committee will provide the Cedar Rapids Community District with the practical means for the Board of Education to provide independent review and oversight of the District’s financial reporting processes, internal controls, and independent auditors. The Audit Committee will also provide a forum separate from management in which auditors and other interested parties can candidly discuss concerns.

The Audit Committee will help to ensure that District management properly develops and adheres to a sound system of internal controls, that procedures are in place to objectively assess District management practices and that the independent auditors, through their own review, objectively assess the District’s financial reporting processes.
