2004 Attachment 1 - Summary of Audited Enrollment by School Type and Grade
Annual Public School Enrollment Audit
2004 Fall Enrollment Audit, District of Columbia Public Charter Schools
The State Education Office contracted with Thompson, Cobb, Bazilio & Associates, P.C. to perform the School Year 2004-2005 independent audit of the fall student enrollment count. The auditors conducted a 100 percent verification of student enrollment and residency files and reported the final enrollment counts to individual school principals and to the State Education Office.
School principals were entitled to request an appeal of the auditors’ findings from the appropriate chartering authority. If the evidence warranted a hearing, school principals had the opportunity to present their position and provide relevant information to the appropriate authority. The chartering authority then issued a report listing all students for whom an appeal was granted and for whom an appeal was disapproved. The SEO compiled the appeals results together with the independent auditor’s findings to produce the 2004 Post-Audit Enrollment figures. The SEO reports the Post-Audit Enrollment figures to the Office of the Chief Financial Officer which uses them to calculate the budget for the DC Public Charter Schools. The 2004 Post-Audit Enrollment figures reported by the SEO are the official enrollment figures for the DC Public Charter Schools.
