Pen Argyl school district audit meeting
PEN ARGYL, Pa. -

State auditors gave high marks to the Pen Argyl Area School District in a review of the district’s business practices.

“It was a clean audit,” Walter Schlegel Jr., the district’s business administrator, told the school board Tuesday night. “All was well.”

The audit, conducted by the Department of the Auditor General, covered the period July 15, 2011 through Oct. 22, 2013.

School districts are regularly audited every two years but state auditors are considering auditing Pen Argyl every three or four years, Schlegel said, because the auditors believe the district is “so low a risk.”

The school district, which covers 129 square miles, has 1,758 students and 128 teachers.

It received $8.2 million in state funding in the 2011-2012 school year.

It operates on a budget of about $27 million.
