State auditors find a handful of inconsistencies in Pasco's FTE audit



An Auditor General's review of the Pasco County school district's 2009-10 student enrollment accounting found errors that could cost the district $200,000 or more.

The audit, released Friday, indicates that the district made a small number of errors in reporting the correct learning categories for students, in areas such as special education and English as a second language. It also shows where students were improperly classified for purposes of school bus transportation.

In pre-kindergarten, for instance, 107 students were listed for state transportation funding who were not eligible, the audit states.

These were the only areas of concern listed in the report. It remains up to the Department of Education to determine and final FTE adjustments and to set their financial implications. Read the full report here.
