More corruption at the SAUSD as $89,056 in state funding is lost

The O.C. Register has reported that “The Santa Ana Unified School District will lose an additional $89,056 in state funding because it could not keep several ninth-grade English and math classes limited to 20 students.”

Amazing – and sad. When are the SAUSD board and Superintendent Jane Russo going to be held accountable for this?

Here are a few excerpts from the Register article:

The audit also stated that the district would have to return an additional $20,000 in funding to the state for the 2005-06 school year because of inaccurate class rosters filed last year for freshman English and math classes.

In April, another audit revealed that the district would stand to lose about $2 million in funding because dozens of elementary classes in Santa Ana Unified were not limited to 20 students.

“This has been a very difficult learning experience for us,” said Rob Richardson, school board president. “The right things were not being done right.”

You think so Rob? When are YOU going to resign from the board, in abject shame?
