The mistakes involve Title-one funds. They're supposed to be used to pay for academic programs for low-income students. But an audit has found that from 2014 through this fiscal year some of those funds had been misallocated.
The mistakes have affected more than 400 charters and school districts across the state. Some have recieved hundreds of thousands of dollars more than they were entitled to, while others were shorted.
The Department believe it's fixed the problem for the 2018 dfiscal year. But there's still no plan for getting back money that was overpaid or reimbursing those that were shorted.
