Westbrook and Co. has served charter schools in auditing, accounting, payroll, budgeting, special projects and advisory services since the inception of charter schools in Missouri. For many other accounting and auditing firms in the state, school finance is a part-time, summer fill-in work. This is not the case at Westbrook & Co. The firm provides more services to charter schools than all other accounting firms in the state combined. The firm consists of 22 professionals of which nine perform extensively charter school services.
Members of the firm regularly speak at state and local conferences on school finance, attendance and various other topics. They believe in educating their clients and helping them better understand the environments in which they must operate.
The firm has a very good relationship with DESE. Westbrook & Co., P.C. has performed special projects for DESE over the last several years. These projects have provided a unique and special insight to the firm’s staff. DESE’s selection of Westbrook & Co. to perform such projects says much about DESE’s opinion of the quality of the firm’s work.
If you are one of the firm’s many charter clients, then they thank you for allowing them to be a part of your educational process. If you are not a current client, then they encourage you to ask other schools and learn about the “Westbrook difference.”
