Best Financial Management Practices for Florida School Districts, Report No. 97-08, October 1997
Full report in PDF format

  • As directed by the 1997 Legislature, OPPAGA and the Auditor General have developed and the Commissioner of Education has adopted best financial management practices for Florida school districts.
  • OPPAGA and the Auditor General conduct reviews, at the request of a school board, to determine if a school district is using these practices. Districts that OPPAGA and the Auditor General determine to be using best financial management practices can receive a seal from the State Board of Education. This should increase public confidence in the districts' resource management.
  • Districts that use these best financial management practices could realize significant cost savings by increasing their efficiency and effectiveness.
