Local Education Agencies

K-12 Education

At Nigro & Nigro, we are recognized as an industry leader, with extensive experience working with school districts, county offices of education, JPAs, and charter schools. In fact, working with California Local Education Agencies (LEAs) makes up the majority of our firm’s audit and consulting practice. We are actively involved in numerous trade groups and seminars that pertain to the school district and charter school industries.

Audit Services

As a member of the American Institute of CPAs Governmental Audit Quality Center, we are committed to adhering to the highest quality standards by voluntarily agreeing to the Center membership requirements, which include designating a partner responsible for the quality of our not-for-profit organization audit practice, establishing quality control programs, performing annual internal inspection procedures, and making our peer review report findings publicly available.

Our team of audit specialists stays current in this highly technical practice area by adhering to the continuing professional education requirements of Government Auditing Standards and attending various continuing education programs including the annual School Districts Conference webcast, the Annual CASBO conference, the Annual CCSA Conference, the CSBA Annual Education Conference, and other relevant workshops and by reviewing the annual updates from the AICPA Audit & Accounting Guide for State and Local Governments.

Consulting

In addition to top tier auditing services, we also assist LEAs with numerous consulting services. Some of the services we have provided to clients include: Staff training and workshops, specialized program reviews, departmental efficiency studies, cash flow and multi-year projections, accounting advice and assistance, fixed asset management, and assistance with State reporting.
