Performance Audit Complete
(WOUB) - The state is recommending that the Cambridge City School District develop a sick leave abuse policy to save money.

A state performance audit reviewed financial systems, human resources, and technology for the district - which qualified for the audit when it was placed in fiscal caution in 2006.

The audit says some of the school's current practices are worthy of recognition such as reducing staffing levels, limiting spending on discretionary items, and installing computer software to improve network security.

The audit also made additional recommendations such as aligning staffing levels closer to state minimums, making changes to the health insurance plan, and developing a sick leave abuse policy to reduce overtime costs.

The report indicates that if these recommendations are followed, the district could save nearly 1.4 million dollars a year and operate with a positive balance through 20-11.
