(Reading) -- State Auditor General Eugene DePasquale is leveling harsh criticism at the Reading School District.
DePasquale has released a scathing performance audit report that blames dysfunctional management for a wide range of serious financial and academic problems.
The state's elected fiscal watchdog says a clerical error showed the district having $15.6 million more in state aid than it actually had went undetected for more than a year. He says the district's graduation rate is only 61 percent, well below the state goal of 85 percent.
He says student test scores are similarly low and notes the district has had four superintendents since 2005 while basic policies and procedures for accounting, security and other issues remain inadequate.
