CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- A routine state audit is scheduled for next week, but Chambersburg Area School District Superintendent Joseph Padasak said he asked auditors to look specifically at conference and credit card expenditures in light of questions raised by a citizens group.
The audit is to examine the transportation, attendance, certifications and other facets of district operations, Padasak said Tuesday night. The auditors also will be taking another look at how the district used credit cards that had been issued to administrators.
"They were used for legitimate purposes. They were used for business purposes, not personal use," Padasak said.
"It's already been looked at by our solicitor, by our business office," Board President Stanley Helman said. "We have nothing to hide. If there would be, we'd want to know about it. That's why we get audited each year by a local auditor and by a state auditor."
The expenditures have, in many cases, already been subject to audits "and there has been nothing found that is inappropriate," Helman said.
