The Sun-Sentinel reports that the Broward County School District may have to reimburse the state $1.8 million for two closed charter schools that failed to keep proper enrollment records for two years. Read more.

The State Auditor General found the jointly owned charters schools could not verify their enrollments for the 2013-14 school year and therefore the state is owed $729,000. The district expects to be on the hook for another $1.1 million because the school also failed to keep proper enrollment records this past school year.

When the Escambia County School District terminated the Newpoint school charters, the superintendent and staff said that those schools failed to keep accurate attendance records. The State Attorney’s Office is investigating the schools for grade tampering.

Wonder if the State Auditor is also involved in the investigation?
