The Westerville City School District’s Board of Education is seeking applicants for two open positions on its audit committee, which serves as a professional link between the Board and external auditors. 

Those interested may apply here. All applications must be received by 12 p.m. (noon) on October 9, 2020. Those members appointed by the Board will serve a one-year term and may be subsequently renewed for consecutive one-year terms at the discretion of the Executive Committee.

The audit committee is non-voting and consists of nine members. While up to four school officials may serve on the audit committee, the other members will be persons independent of the Board and Administration. Members of the audit committee must be professionals knowledgeable in District operations and in governmental accounting/auditing (e.g., attorneys, bankers).

This audit committee is charged with assisting the Board to verify that audit recommendations are addressed in a timely and appropriate manner.

Recommended applicants will be presented to the Board of Education for consideration during the October 26, 2020 regular board meeting.
