Internal Auditing is an independent and objective assurance and consulting activity that is guided by a philosophy of adding value to improve the operations of the Plano Independent School District. It assists the Plano ISD Board of Trustees and district management in accomplishing their objectives by bringing a systematic and disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of the organization’s risk management, control, and governance processes. To this end, the internal auditors will furnish the school board and district management with analyses, recommendations, counsel and information concerning activities reviewed.
The Internal Audit Department is established by the Plano ISD Board of Trustees, and its responsibilities are defined by the audit committee of the board of trustees as part of their oversight function. The department reports functionally to the audit committee of the board of trustees and administratively to the assistant superintendent for district services.
The Plano Independent School District is committed to the highest possible standards of ethical, moral and legal business conduct. In line with this commitment, Plano ISD has established a fraud hotline through Lighthouse Services, Inc. for the purpose of anonymous reports of suspected fraud, unlawful, unethical and other types of improper behavior within our organization. The hotline is intended to be used to report serious concerns or questionable actions that:
- May lead to incorrect financial reporting;
