Assemblymember McCarty Calls for “Deep Dive” Audit of Sac City
SCTA applauds California Assemblymember Kevin McCarty in his call for a “deep dive” state audit of the Sacramento City Unified School District.
An initial audit conducted by the state’s Fiscal Crisis Management Assistant Team blasted the District for its fiscal mismanagement, citing “leadership issues” among a handful of factors that make fiscal insolvency likely.
The audit McCarty is calling for is, as he put it, more “akin to a forensic audit,” which generally means that it not only identifies what went wrong, but who is responsible for it.
“Two rejected budgets and serious concerns about fiscal mismanagement merit a forensic audit,” said David Fisher, the SCTA president. “We hope that school board members and other elected officials will join us in supporting more sunlight rather than circle the wagons.”
