District receives highest marks in clean audit

Upon review of Mehlville School District’s finances for the 2021 fiscal year, auditors from Daniel Jones and Associates issued the district’s accounting practices its highest marks, an unmodified opinion, or clean audit.

Auditors issue unmodified opinions to express that financial statements are presented fairly in all material respects and to express that the district has complied with all statutory requirements. Daniel Jones and Associates presented the audit report to the Mehlville Board of Education on Dec. 16, 2021.

“Our employees work hard to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars,” said Mehlville School District Chief Financial Officer Marshall Crutcher. “It’s incredibly important that we maintain the trust of our community, and we are proud to again earn the high marks from our financial auditor.”

Mehlville School District currently has the second lowest blended tax rate out of the 22 St. Louis County school districts. In fiscal year 2020 (2019-2020 school year), the district spent $9,592 per student, the third lowest amount of St. Louis County school districts.
