Raymore-Peculiar School District’s Board of Education met Thursday evening, Feb. 28. From a policy standpoint, the highlight of their agenda was approval of revisions to the district policy governing “Audits.” Board President Kim York cast the sole dissenting vote. According to a meeting update on the district’s website:

The board approved changing Policy DIE about Audits. The policy now states that the district’s selection of the independent auditor may be competitive bid every three years. The district is not required to bid the selection of the auditor. The board approved the change by a vote of 5-1, with Board President Kim York casting the dissenting vote. (Board member Kyle Gillespie was absent.) York shared concerns that the language could lead to the district keeping the same auditor for many years without seeking bids. She said she may propose a change to the Policy Review Committee.

The board then awarded the newly approved three-year contract to Westbrook & Co. of Richmond, MO.
