Missouri State Auditor Scott Fitzpatrick announced his office has started an audit of the Kingston K-14 School District located in Washington County. The audit was initiated after 299 residents of the district signed a petition requesting a review of district operations and finances.

“I appreciate and respect the concerns of the residents of the Kingston K-14 School District who requested this audit, and applaud them for gathering the signatures necessary to begin this process. We will work to give them a complete picture of how the district is operating and to identify any areas where it can function more efficiently,” said Fitzpatrick.

The Kingston K-14 School District includes four schools – primary, elementary, middle, and high schools – that provide educational opportunities to more than 800 total students. The audit officially commenced with an entrance meeting with school district officials on Thursday, February 15.
