The Grand Island School District received a favorable annual audit report Monday night for the year that ended June 30, with only three relatively minor recommendations by the firm of Lumsden & McCormick, certified public accountants.

The recommendations are:

Accounts payable should be recorded at year's end. It was noted that items paid after the year end were recorded as expenditures for 1997-98.

Formal reports of extra-classroom activities funds should be submitted to the School Board at least quarterly. This was done for the district middle school, but not the high school.

To safeguard extra-classroom activities funds, the auditors recommended that formal policies be established to match inventory levels to purchase and sales reports.

In other matters:

Trustee Myra F. Blair was appointed the board's representative to the district's shared decision-making team.

Before the the regular meeting, the new six-classroom wing of the Veronica E. Connor Middle School was officially dedicated.

Principal Bruce Benson took visitors on a tour of the wing. School Superintendent Paul D. Fields spoke, and the middle school string orchestra directed by Debra Remson performed.
