SACS to Release Report on DeKalb Schools Monday
The oversight agency has looked into the district's handle on its finances for the last two months.
The regional oversight agency for area schools is expected Monday to release a report on its investigation into DeKalb schools finances, myfoxatlanta.com reported.
The two-month long investigation by the Southern Association of Collages and Schools was sparked by an acrimonous budget process this summer that got parents and district observers complaining about the district's finances.
In 2012, the district has battled cost overruns in its legal bills to defend the district in corruption cases, unveiled a report revealed that the district did not reduce the front office staff as expected to control costs, and struggled with a taxpayer-funded SPLOST that expired this summer faced cost overruns.
The SACS probe is the second in two years for the district. The oversight agency has the power to withdraw accreditation from the district, which could cut it off from federal funds.
The district will likely be more closely watched by SACS for improvement, which was the result of a 2010 probe.
