Auditor General DePasquale Releases Audits for Thirteen School Entities

HARRISBURG (Jan. 9, 2014) – Auditor General Eugene DePasquale today announced the release of audit reports for three intermediate units in Lehigh, Lycoming and Schuylkill counties; two career/technology centers in Bradford and Schuylkill counties; and eight school districts in Allegheny, Cambria, Erie, Mercer, Northampton, Union, Venango and York counties.

The department’s Bureau of School Audits examines the records of school districts, charter schools, intermediate units, and area vocational-technical schools. The audits — among other things — assess whether or not school entities received the state subsidies and reimbursements to which they were entitled, accurately managed taxpayer funds, and complied with ethics codes. The audits also determine whether or not teachers and administrators were properly certified for the positions they held during the audit period.
