Arizona Auditor General Spending Report 

Arizona Revised Statutes §41-1279.03 requires the Auditor General to monitor school districts to determine the percentage of every dollar spent in the classroom by a school district and conduct performance audits of Arizona’s school districts. This analysis has 2 main objectives:

  • It analyzes State operational spending trends in instruction and 6 other operational categories—student support, instruction support, administration, plant operations, food service, and transportation—since monitoring began in FY 2001.1 It also identifies spending differences between Arizona school districts and analyzes changes in the State average teacher salary between FYs 2017 and 2023.
  • It presents State and individual school district results that show performance on various measures, including instructional spending percentage, operational and nonoperational spending compared to peer and national averages, average teacher salary and average teacher base salaries, and the percentage of students who passed State assessments.

The governing board of a school district that is required to comply with the single audit act amendments of 1996 (P.L. 104-156; 110 Stat. 1396; 31 United States Code sections 7501 through 7507) shall contract for at least annual financial and compliance audits of financial transactions and accounts subject to the single audit act amendments of 1996 and kept by or for the school district. The governing board of a school district that is not required to comply with the single audit act and that has adopted an expenditure budget of $2,000,000 or more for the maintenance and operation fund pursuant to section 15-905 shall contract for an annual financial statement audit.  The governing board of a school district that is not required to comply with the single audit act and that has adopted an expenditure budget of less than $2,000,000 but more than $700,000 for the maintenance and operation fund pursuant to section 15-905 shall contract for a biennial financial statement audit.  An independent certified public accountant shall conduct the audit in accordance with generally accepted government standards. To the extent permitted by federal law, a school district that is required to participate in an annual audit pursuant to this subsection may convert to a biennial audit schedule if the previous annual audit did not contain any significant negative findings. If a biennial audit of a school district conducted pursuant to this subsection contains any significant negative findings, the school district shall convert back to an annual audit schedule. If a school district is required to convert back to an annual audit schedule pursuant to this subsection because of significant negative findings, the school district may subsequently convert to a biennial audit schedule if the previous two annual audits did not contain any significant negative findings. For the purposes of this subsection, "significant negative finding" means a finding that results in the issuance of a letter of noncompliance from the auditor general.
