Fiscal Stewardship

District has history of strong fiscal stewardship of community resources

Stanwood-Camano School District’s strategic plan continues to guide the efficient use of resources on effective instructional practices. 

Award-winning Fiscal Stewardship

Fiscal award

Washington State Auditor Pat McCarthy recognized Stanwood-Camano School District in June 2022 as an outstanding example of commitment to safeguarding public resources.

District leadership has consistently demonstrated dedication to risk evaluation and resolution, compliance with applicable requirements and transparency, especially during the audit process.

The award is presented in recognition of outstanding accomplishment in the stewardship of public resources as we pursue the shared goal of government that works better, costs less, and earns greater public trust.

Clean audits confirm continuous improvement process

Each year the State Auditor’s Office (SAO) performs an annual audit of district programs and business practices. Since 2014, the district has received a clean audit, with no audit findings. Clean audits benefit district stakeholders and show accountability for use of public resources.
