Audit raises questions about school system cuts

Posted: Updated:
DECATUR, Ga. -

An audit report found that despite a school board's decision to cut 150 positions from its central office, only 109 might have been eliminated -- and district officials can't find the detailed list of people and positions that were to have been cut.

The draft audit report states that DeKalb County Schools officials could not explain why a file related to the reduction contained only 109 people and not the 150 approved by the school board.

School board members received the report last week, but initially kept it confidential. A school system spokesman said board members wanted to digest the information before it was made public. The school system later posted the report on its website.

The draft audit report by KPMG also found inconsistencies in financial and employee records.
