Womack Calling for School System Investigation

The DeKalb County Board of Education member representing District 4 wants someone to look into school system finances.

Womack Calling for School System Investigation

DeKalb County Board of Education member Paul Womack is calling for an investigation of the school system's finances due to a systemwide budgetary descent from a projected surplus last year to its current $6 million deficit.

The District 4 representative first called for the investigation when the school board passed its $760 million budget last month.

From a story in Neighbor Newspapers about Womack's concerns:

“We were told at the beginning of 2011-12 there would be a $93 million operating surplus at the end of this year,” said Womack. “Then we were told we’d have $53 million … now we’re projected to have a deficit of minus $6 [million]. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that something’s wrong.”

He said he's already contacted the state to investigate the school system's finance and human resources departments.

For more information, read the rest of the story.
