Board Hears Audit Report – RISD in Strong Financial Condition 11/18/14
At its November regular meeting, the RISD Board voted to approve the required annual audit of fiscal accounts performed by a certified outside auditing firm. Mr. Dan Tonn, CPA, with the firm Hankins, Eastup, Deaton, Tonn & Seay, reported that the audit of RISD accounts for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2014 was unqualified, meaning no accounting problems were identified. Mr. Tonn further shared with trustees that, based on its conservative fiscal practices, RISD "continues to be in excellent financial condition."

Stakeholder Committee to Study Secondary Growth in Lake Highlands 
One of RISD's priority goals this year is to plan for future space needs at the secondary level due to enrollment growth and new course offerings. An initial idea suggested by the district to help address future space needs is a possible merger of Lake Highlands Freshman Center and Lake Highlands High School.

On October 23, RISD held the third of three community meetings in Lake Highlands to discuss the topics surrounding the idea. Dr. Waggoner announced at the meeting that more time is needed to study the different options for addressing space needs.

"We have heard consistent feedback that the Freshman Center is a valued and important part of the Lake Highlands community," said Waggoner. "I'm not comfortable making any recommendation to our Board regarding how to address secondary growth in Lake Highlands until more time can be taken, in concert with parents and other stakeholders, to evaluate the issues involved and determine what course of action is best for students in Lake Highlands."

A stakeholder committee that includes parents will be created to study the issue and report findings and recommendations to the district and community.
