Barrington schools in strong shape financially, auditor reports

ALSO: Students of the month, Woodland retirement, thanks to outgoing member Scott Manlove


Avon SchoolBarrington School District Auditor Robert P. Inverso of Inverso & Stewart delivered good news to the board of education at this week’s meeting: Even though the taxes collected went down, the district’s surplus increased.

For a small school, we’re in about as good shape as we can be,” Inverso said.

The district had expenditures of $11.7 million over the 2012-13 school year, ending June 30, compared with $12.3 million the previous year. The decreased expenditures helped the district set aside funds in the capital reserve account, tuition reserve account, maintenance reserve account and emergency reserve account, among other accounts.

“The district’s going to be in good shape for years to come,” Inverso said, noting he had no recommendations for how the district could improve its finances.

In other business, the board also:

  • Accepted the retirement of Woodland School science teacher Lois Dinsmore as of June 30
  • Accepted the resignation of Avon School lunchroom aide Holly McCauley. The resignation as an employee of the district was necessary before McCauley could begin in her role as a school board member on Jan. 6.
  • Recognized the efforts of Woodland School’s students of the month: Fardeen Bilal, Jesse Fitzgerald, Vincent Ferraro, Christian Segarra, Madeline Phillips, Matthew Urban, Daniel Shell and Zoe Weick.
  • Said goodbye to Scott Manlove, who has served with the board for many years. Manlove chose not to run for re-election this past November.
