Community Partnership Charter School

Financial Management Practices

Community Partnership Charter School is located in Brooklyn and has about 290 students enrolled in kindergarten through grade 5. The School, which was established in 2000, is one of more than 40 schools chartered by the State University of New York. We audited the adequacy of the internal controls established by School officials over selected areas of financial operations. We found that the controls over some areas of operation were adequate, but improvements were needed in other areas. For example, contrary to the law authorizing the creation of charter schools, some of the individuals hired by the School did not undergo a criminal history record check before beginning their employment. Improvements were also needed in the areas of procurement and cash disbursements.
