Harrisburg School District refuses to provide financial information to state auditors, education department says


The Harrisburg School District is blocking efforts by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to audit the district’s finances by refusing to provide access to financial information, according to a letter from the department obtained Friday by PennLive.

The state department announced the audit in October, after a series of financial scandals at the district. Those financial issues include a transportation supervisor accused of embezzling $180,000, the over-hiring of 37 teachers for unbudgeted positions and the continuation of health care coverage for 54 employees who had resigned from the district in recent years.

The audit was supposed to examine the district's accounting practices, budget projections and internal controls, among other things. The district is considered by the state to be in financial distress.

In a March 27 letter to Harrisburg Superintendent Sybil Knight-Burney, Pennsylvania Education Secretary Pedro Rivera wrote that the district must provide all information needed “to investigate the District’s financial records without further delay.”

What are they hiding?
