Fiscal Oversight Committee

  • The Board of Education chose citizens from a group of applicants to serve on the WPS Financial Oversight Committee. This group meets on a regular basis and has three business community members. They are:

    • David Bell
    • Jose Giardiello
    • Andy Kehoe 
     

    Purpose

    The group meets on a regular basis throughout the school year. The primary function of the oversight committee is to assist the Board of Education in fulfilling its oversight responsibilities by reviewing:
    • Financial reports and other financial information used internally and provided by the district to any governmental body or the public
    • District's systems of internal controls regarding finance, accounting, legal compliance and ethics that leadership team and the Board have established
    • Business risk of the district
    • District's auditing, accounting and financial reporting processes

    Consistent with this function, the WPS Fiscal Oversight Committee should encourage continuous improvement and foster adherence to the district's policies, procedures and practices at all levels.
