System audit, teacher bonuses approved at board meeting

Posted: December 12, 2013 - 9:57pm

The Conway Public Schools Board of Education received their audit for the 2012-13 year at the board meeting Dec. 10.

Corey Moline served as a representative of the Hudson, Cisne and Co. firm and stated the firm did not find anything to be concerned about.

Moline said they issued an “unqualified” — or clean — opinion on the financial stance of the district.

There were also no findings to report concerning compliance, the internal controls of the school district and the use of federal funds spent by the district.

“In total, we wish to communicate that the management — Dr. Murry and his staff — was very cooperative and helpful in performance of the audit and getting us the information that we needed to perform the audit,” Moline said.

It takes a firm about 300 hours of work to audit a school system the size of Conway, Moline said.

Also at the board meeting, the school board approved a one-time Christmas bonus for employees. The bonuses would be in the amount of 2 percent of their annual contracted amount.

“In the spirit of what we sense from the vast majority of our teachers, they are extremely appreciative of what you will do here in just a moment,” Superintendent Greg Murry said before the vote, which was unanimously in favor of the bonus.

The bonus would cost approximately $1,212,430 of the Operating Budget. Murry said things are going “as good if not better than what we would expect at this time of the year” when it comes to the system finances, which is why they were comfortable with recommending a bonus.

The more bonuses teachers

The more bonuses teachers will get ( I am talking about those educators who really deserve this money of course) the better results they will show. You know, everybody deserves to have stimulation and there is nothing better than a monetary stimulation at this moment. As for the unqualified teachers, I think it is time for the government to fund this segment as well and raise or at least prove the qualification of teacher in the United States of America. In any case, thank you for the article
