Edmond board names technology training lab for late school CFO

District receives positive audit report

EDMOND — Edmond Public School this week renamed the EPS Administrative Center Technology Training Lab the David G. Fraser Technology Training Lab. Superintendent David Goin and Edmond School Board members named the lab after Fraser, who died in December 2012, in recognition of his 22 years of service to the Edmond School District.

The lab was renamed in honor of the man who was employed by the EPS in 1990 and served in various roles including Business Manager, Director of Technology and Chief Financial Officer.

“David took primary responsibility for the business, finance and technology areas of the district including presiding over the integration of the district’s vast technology needs and infrastructure development for more than a decade,” Goin read from the proclamation.

He went on to say, “David was a man of integrity, honesty and reliability, a man who had high performance expectations for himself and who passed along his deep sense of purpose and direction to all with whom he worked; and acknowledging that David Fraser’s expertise, abilities and humanity contributed greatly to the success of this district, with great affection we rename the lab.”

Goin said the school board members will make a donation to the Edmond Schools Foundation in the name of David Fraser.

District receives audit

District Treasurer Lori Smith introduced Mary Johnson, a partner with the CPA firm Rahhal Henderson Johnson PLLC who presented the results of the Independent Audit of Fiscal Year 2012 Financial Statements.

Johnson reported there were no material weaknesses nor significant deficiencies in internal controls identified during the audit, and there were no audit findings with regard to the compliance with federal programs.

She stated a report of conditions identified which were not material enough to qualify the audit opinion but which should be addressed by management.

The first condition concerned the timeliness and accuracy of deposits.

“During the time of testing of activity fund receipts, six out of 60 were not deposited within one business day. In these instances the teacher turned in the money to the financial secretary the day after it was collected,” Johnson said. “In two out of 60 receipts tested, the teacher’s collection sheet did not agree to the financial secretary’s deposit. In both of these instances the teacher’s list had compilation errors which were adjusted by the financial secretary when making the deposit but were not corrected on the teacher’s list.”

The second condition was that not all departments maintain inventories of supplies, parts, etc., and complete year-end physical counts.

“The district will implement inventory procedures in the current year for departments needing them (custodial, transportation and maintenance departments) and will obtain year-end inventory values in the current and future years which will be recorded in the district financial statements,” Johnson said.
