Parent Fundraising - How the Globe and Mail Got it Wrong (Part 2)

by Marshall Leslie (the owner of this blog).

Yesterday, I rebutted both the data and the interpretation of the data in a Globe and Mail article: “Toronto school fundraising raises questions about equity in public-education”. It turns out I was not alone.

The national accounting firm Deloitte withheld its opinion of the Toronto District School Board's 2012 and 2013 consolidated financial statements because of the inadequacy of TDSB fundraising reports and stated: "In common with many school boards, individual schools derive revenue from school fundraising activities held throughout the year. Adequate documentation and controls were not in place throughout the year to allow us to obtain satisfactory audit verification as to the completeness of these revenues" ...

Please follow the link, to the top of page 5 of Deloitte's report.

Build Green Schools.ca

These pages are a resource for students, parents, staff and neighbours who wish to make the buildings and yards in their school community sustainable, high-performance and "green". The site was originally created for members of the Runnymede Public School community in the west-end of Toronto, but has expanded. This blog is owned and maintained by Marshall Leslie (see www.mleslie.com). You can also follow us on Twitter @greenschools_ca
