Berkshire Local School’s Treasurer’s office, led by district Treasurer Beth McCaffrey, recently received the highly acclaimed Auditor of State Award with Distinction from the Ohio Auditor of State’s Office for their latest “clean” audit. Included in the nearby picture is Jaime Berman, Assistant to the Treasurer and Bonnie Makowski, Payroll. Jim Shaw, the region’s representative for Auditor of State David Yost, made a public presentation at the regular meeting of the Board of Education this month and praised Treasurer McCaffrey for the exemplary reporting, high standards and dedication to sound stewardship of taxpayer resources during the last year. “Treasurer McCaffrey is one of the best we work with,” stated Mr. Shaw. He added that this year is built upon many years of excellence demonstrated by Treasurer McCaffrey’s work and the commitment she has maintained to transparency and keeping the public trust. One of the many reporting practices that separates Treasurer McCaffrey is her issuance of a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), not required by state law, but encouraged and promoted by Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (G.A.A.P.). On behalf of the Berkshire Local Schools, congratulations to Treasurer Beth McCaffrey for receiving the Auditor of State Award with Distinction.
