MISD Receives Audit Report
Thursday, November 19, 2015
The Muleshoe Independent School District’s board of trustees received the audit report for the year ending June 30, 2015, from local auditor Randall Field during its regular meeting on Monday, Nov. 9.

And while the district has routinely received a “clean audit” in previous years, a minor glitch appeared in this year’s report.

According to the audit report, and Superintendent Dr. R.L. Richards, a “non-compliance” issue was noted, the result of “Robin Hood” funds the school district received but didn’t transfer out of the school district’s bank account in a timely enough manner.
