How it works and purpose:

The Audit Committee provides a practical means for the CRCSD Board of Education to obtain independent review and oversight of the District financial reporting processes, internal controls, and independent auditors.  The Audit Committee also provides a forum separate from management in which auditors and other interested parties can candidly discuss concerns.  The Audit Committee helps to ensure that District internal control management is designed properly and that procedures are in place to assess District management practices objectively.
