State yanks $10.9 million in federal money from Harrisburg School District over audit dispute

The state Department of Education has suspended $10.9 million in federal grants to Harrisburg School District, saying the suspension would be lifted when the district complies with the requests of a firm thatís conducting an audit of the district.

Superintendent Sybil Knight-Burney and Business Manager Bilal Hasan met with Department of Education officials Wednesday to discuss the audit, after school district officials refused to give auditors access to the districtís eFinance system.

The school board last week voted not to cooperate with auditorís request to access the system. Hasan argued that he has provided auditors with the data they have requested, but he insists that the district is not required to provide access to its financial database.

The district issued a news release shortly before 5 p.m. Wednesday saying that when they met with education department officials at 2 p.m. Wednesday, they received a list of 14 unanswered information requests, which they said were out of 300 that the district had received and answered.
