Financial Transparency

In exchange for operational freedom and flexibility, Charter schools tend to be subject to higher levels of accountability, both academically and financially, than traditional public schools. Stargate strives for the highest levels of financial transparency and clarity.

Financial Oversight at Stargate

The Finance Committee of Stargate School’s Board of Directors has oversight regarding the School’s budgets and financial statements. The committee consists of parent volunteers with appropriate qualifications who work together with the Board and the School's Executive Director of Operations and Finance to continuously monitor the School's financial position and ensure the highest standards of financial stewardship, accountability, and transparency.

In addition, the School's annual financial statements and internal controls over financial reporting are audited by an independent auditor as required by Colorado Revised Statute 29-1-603. The independent auditor issues a report to the Stargate Board of Directors, containing their opinion as to whether the financial statements fairly present, in all material respects, the financial position of Stargate Charter School. The independent audit is conducted in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States.
