Flint school board members to review audit, with state aid payment on the line
The Flint School Board will hear the findings of the district’s most recent audit this evening.
The audit is expected to show continued problems with misspent funds, lax oversight and other issues.
“Our students deserve the very best and we’re definitely going to do that. In order for us to do that, we’re going to have to turn this district around,” says Larry Watkins, Flint’s interim school superintendent.
Watkins says the audit shows the Flint school district has a ten million dollar deficit. But one critic says the deficit is twice that much.
The Flint School Board must approve the audit at tonight’s special meeting or risk the state withholding its December aid payment.
