Audit to examine Susquehanna Township School District

Harrisburg

Auditor General Eugene DePasquale says his office has launched a new audit of the Susquehanna Township School District.

DePasquale said the new audit will review recommendations made after one in 2014 that found “nearly never-ending bickering” among board members and administrators.

“Board members and administrators were filing lawsuits against each other left and right,” DePasquale said in a news release. He said four cases were filed from November 2013 to May 2014, causing the district’s legal costs to soar over 160 percent in 2013-14.

DePasquale said the new audit will focus on areas that may include financial stability, administrator contract buyouts, school safety, teacher and administrator certification, bus driver qualifications, and overall district governance.
