Press Conference: Special Audit Results of Columbus City School District
Auditor Yost Releases Report in Press Conference
A top-down culture of data manipulation and employee intimidation was uncovered by a special audit of the Columbus City School District, released in a press conference by Auditor of State Dave Yost.
Auditors and investigators conducted work based on nine objectives and reviewed information from the period of July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011. Overall, the special audit found a troubling lack of documentation and records, inconsistently followed business rules, and unacceptably high data error rates.
