Student fundraisers and events recognized at Clearview Board of Education meeting

The district audit report was also presented with no recommendations or findings

At last week’s Clearview Regional High School District Board of Education meeting, members of the Student Council spoke on recent school activities, fundraisers and events, while the board received feedback on a recent audit.

Senior Luis Becerra-Solis of Clearview’s Student Council Education Committee spoke at the Nov. 30 meeting on various school happenings that took place throughout the month. On Nov. 15, Clearview hosted the annual Powder Puff football game where seniors took home the victory against the junior class. According to Becerra-Solis, the Mr. Clearview contest, which took place on Nov. 16, acted as a fundraiser for a local family in need, raising $4,300 through donations.

Additional school activities included a senior financial aid night in preparation for impending college costs, National Honor Society inductions and student coalition workshops to prepare presentations for faculty and staff members on diversity within the school.

“I like seeing how receptive the faculty is, understanding this is an important issue and it’s not something to be taken lightly, but something that brings a lot of people together,” Becerra-Solis said.

Student Council Community Service Chair Haley Adler, a senior, was also in attendance at the board meeting, announcing the school’s accomplishment of collecting approximately 350 “homeless bags,” filled with personal hygiene items and non-perishable goods, to be distributed to those in need before the holidays.

“It was an amazing turnout and it was great to see everyone donating for the good cause,” Adler said. “It was very rewarding.”

David McNally, senior manager of Holman Frenia Allison, P.C., presented an audit report for the year ending June 30, with no recommendations after review.

“[It was] another great year for Clearview as far as the audit goes. No findings or recommendations,” McNally said.

According to McNally, the district received the “cleanest opinion it could get” for the independent auditor’s report, and a corrective action plan is not necessary.

According to Superintendent John Horchak III, the district also exceeded in this year’s state Quality Single Accountability Continuum, the Department of Education’s “monitoring and district self-evaluation system for public school districts.”

Horchak said this is the fourth consecutive year Clearview Regional High School District received 100 percent ratings on all five of the assessment’s categories — instruction and program, fiscal, school operations, personnel and governance.
