Auditor to Meet with Springfield Public Schools Tuesday

With some Springfield citizens voicing concerns over how the local public school district spends its funds, Missouri auditor Susan Montee and her office will soon be stepping in to perform an audit. KSMU’s Justin Lux has the story.

Montee will be meeting with the Springfield Public Schools Board of Education on Tuesday, September 21 at 5 p.m. to describe what the audit process will entail. The meeting will be open to all members of the public. However, the meeting does not allow time for comments from the public. Allison Bruns is the communications director in the auditor’s office.“We have already received numerous e-mails and phone calls from members of the public. These are all confidential and remain anonymous, but we do encourage people to contact our office if they have any, you know, they have any concerns or things they want us to look at and we do look at all of them,” Bruns says.

The audit is expected to take more than one year and will cost the district roughly $180,000. Montee's office says that since the audit was petitioned by local citizens, the cost must be covered by the district.For KSMU News, I’m Justin Lux.
