Calls for Special Audit Review of BCPS & Gov. Hogan Calls for School Investigator

Many feel that the planned audit of tech-related BCPS contracts by an accounting firm hired by the school system doesn’t go far enough.  Read about a proposed special review audit and accompanying petition, and about Gov. Hogan’s call to create a new State Education Department Investigator General. The IG would be charged with “investigating complaints of unethical, unprofessional, or illegal conduct relating to procurement, education assets, graduation requirements, grading, education facilities, and school budgets.”
