At Cerini & Associates, we have both an extensive background in systems and a keen understanding of school district operations. We don't take a "canned" approach to working with school districts, but instead take the time to understand how you do business, the unique nuances of your operations, so we can tailor our testing to provide the greatest results and benefit to the district. Furthermore, we produce reports that are easy to understand and provide results oriented recommendations for improvement; and then we monitor the district's progress in tightening controls. Our recommendations have not only tightened controls, but saved districts money by streamlining operations and uncovering fiscal and operational errors.
We take a different approach than most other firms working in the school district arena; we don’t just do the same procedures month after month, but instead focus on areas of risk and do in-depth testing within those areas.
We are heavily involved in the audit and consulting of more than a dozen pre-school and school age providers (e.g. ACLD, DDI, etc.), giving us unique expertise in PPS/special education.
We find that many firms provide low bids for services and then either bill for additional services or do not perform technically-sufficient work. We pride ourselves on providing high-level, timely services at a guaranteed fixed price...no games, no surprises.
We have been quoted, or appeared in articles, in numerous publications regarding our school district experience, including On Board, The Reporter, and the New York Times.
