The fifth straight clean audit is an important indicator that the financial state of Northridge Local Schools is headed in the right direction. The audit confirms that the district’s finances are all accounted for and that reports are filed appropriately.  This is proof that the district’s accounting practices are in check and that they are reviewed by an independent source.  It also indicates that there are no findings for recovery for five years.
