In 1999, the Board of Education chose citizens from a group of applicants to serve on the District's Financial Oversight Committee.
This group meets at least 10 times a year and has seven business community members. They are:
Mary Everson -Certified Public Accountant
Brian Ballard, President, FirstBank – Evergreen
Mike Bestor, City Manager, Golden
Gordon Calahan - President, Calahan Construction
Chris Johnson - CEO, Capital Investment Counsel, Inc.
Scott Tarbox - Rumler Tarbox Lyden Law Corp., Attorney
Bob West - CFO – Apex Park and Recreation District
The group meets monthly throughout the school year and the primary function of the oversight committee is to assist the Board of Education in fulfilling its oversight responsibilities by reviewing:
- financial reports and other financial information used internally and provided by the district to any governmental body or the public;
- the district's systems of internal controls regarding finance, accounting, legal compliance and ethics that management and the Board have established;
- assess the business risk of the district; and the district's auditing, accounting and financial reporting processes generally.
Consistent with this function, the Financial Oversight Committee should encourage continuous improvement of, and should foster adherence to the district's policies, procedures and practices at all levels.
Financial Oversight Committee typically meets once a month during the school year and with the Board of Education quarterly. See the 2012-2013 meeting schedule.
