Nebraska public school districts are required by Nebraska State Statute

Audits must be submitted to NDE through the Annual Financial Report Collection through the District’s Portal account. Emails and mailings will not be accepted.

The audit requirement is completed when the Auditor’s Letter to Management  following the audit process has been submitted to NDE.

  • All school districts are required to respond to any compliance issues addressed in the school district audit and in the auditor’s Letter to Management (Rule 1, 003.05).  School district responses must include an explanation of how the school remedied those issues.
