Hoosiers in Northwest Indiana are calling for an independent audit of the LaPorte School Corporation’s finances. The state has already conducted an audit and found some discrepancies, with some people asking where the money went.
According to school officials, the problems are a result of a technological malfunction. The school has since hired someone to address the issue, but it remains unresolved. However, they have identified the root cause of the problem and are taking steps to ensure that similar issues do not occur in the future.
The Indiana State Board of Accounts confirmed that no money is missing. However, some members of the community remain skeptical of the district’s explanation.
The LaPorte Community School Corporation Board of School Trustees declared the retirement of Superintendent Mark Francesconi two weeks ago. During the school board meeting on Wednesday night, some members questioned why Francesconi did not address any cash discrepancies before his retirement.
The school board assured residents that they were actively working towards a solution to address the issue and set a date in March to provide an update to the community.
