"We respectfully submit that there is nothing in law or regulation that would preclude this district and other Capital Region school districts from arranging for the provision of this service through an inter-municipal agreement in association with other districts and the Capital Region BOCES, wrote president of the school board Stuart Lyman at the time the audit was released to the district.
Lyman said the district's legal counsel and BOCES counsel also agree with the district on the matter.
Other recommendations of the audit committee were in the area of payroll and cash disbursements and the segregating of payroll functions. According to the report, the school district has made the appropriate changes in each of those areas.
"The report offered us good suggestions for appropriate checks and balances," Loomis said.
