Fiscal Auditing

KSDE Fiscal Auditing provides auditing services on behalf of the Kansas State Board of Education, as authorized by K.S.A. 72-6468.



Preparing for your KSDE Audit:  Please use this document to help you prepare for your school district's KSDE audit. During your annual audit, KSDE Fiscal Auditing staff will verify current year enrollment and attendance and expenditures and programs for the prior year.

Verification of KSDE Household Economic Survey - State At-Risk Weighting - This template can be used to help districts complete verification of KSDE Household Economic Surveys for 2021-22. Once you have opened the template, please see the "Important Information" and the "Verification FAQs" tab in this Excel template to help you successfully complete verification by November 15th. 

Remote Learning Report - 21-22:  Starting November 1, each month, school districts must submit a Remote Learning Report to KSDE. Even if no students are attending through remote learning during the previous month, districts should check the box in the Report directly underneath the Certification for that month and submit the Report to the Auditor File Exchange. Districts should use this Report to help calculate whether a student has attended more than a total of 40 hours (for the year) through remote learning. When completing the Report, please remember that the entire day counts as attending through remote learning and toward the 40-hour limit. Have questions? Please call us. Also see: FAQs - Limiting Remote Learning 2021-22

Enrollment Handbook FY22 -  Note: for questions regarding the limits on remote learning for 2021-22 school year, please see pages 27-28 of the Enrollment Handbook & the FAQs above. You are also welcome to call. Thank you.
