MORROW COUNTY — The Morrow County School District for the 10th consecutive year has received a clean report from their financial audit.

The district in a press release Tuesday, Jan, 11, reported the Pendleton firm of Dickey and Tremper LLP conducted the audit, which the school board reviewed at its meeting Jan. 10.

The audit found the district carried a surplus of $475,343 due to additional support from federal, state and local grants, including COVID-19 grants, according to the press release. The school district also carried an employee retirement reserve fund of almost $1.45 million and did not spend any of the fund.

The district also repaid the voter-approved general obligation bond for capital improvement from 2001.

Morrow County School District Superintendent Dirk Dirksen in the press release said consistently receiving high marks for financial accountability is a credit to staff, the InterMountain Education Service District and the school board.
