Nordonia Treasurer Wins Award (Again)

Nordonia Hills City School District Treasurer/CFO Karen Obratil again has won the Auditor of State Award with Distinction. Having won the award multiple times since she began her work in Nordonia in 2012, this year’s recognition covers Fiscal Year 2018.

The award means that Mrs. Obratil met the following criteria of a “clean” audit report:

  • The entity must file timely financial reports with the Auditor of State’s office via the Hinkle System on a GAAP accounting basis and prepare a CAFR (Comprehensive Annual Financial Report);
  • The audit report does not contain any findings for recovery, material citations, material weaknesses, significant deficiencies, Uniform Guidance (Single Audit) findings or questioned costs;
  • The entity’s management letter contains no comments related to:
    • Ethics referrals
    • Questioned costs less than the threshold per the Uniform Guidance
    • Lack of timely annual financial report submission
    • Reconciliation issues
    • Failure to obtain a timely Single Audit in accordance with Uniform Guidance
    • Findings for recovery less than $500
    • Public meetings or public records issues
  • The entity has no other financial or other concerns

In short, the award means that the Nordonia Schools are good and transparent stewards of our community’s tax dollars. Jake Altman will represent Ohio Auditor of State Keith Faber to present the award to Mrs. Obratil at the April 22, 2019 Board of Education meeting.
