Schools changing policy after audit finds inaccurate records
Published: July 8,2013
HATTIESBURG — A January audit has resulted in administrators making changes in the way they keep records in the Hattiesburg Public School District.
The Hattiesburg American reports the state audit was conducted at three schools.
The auditor found inaccuracies in the areas of enrollment, attendance, safety and textbook assignments.
Superintendent James Bacchus said the audit was welcomed by the district as a learning opportunity.
Officials with the state auditor’s office said the inaccuracies found in the Hattiesburg Public School District are “typical” of what they find in other school districts.
State Auditor Stacey Pickering said he sees the audits as a way to help the districts.
