Arizona School Facilities Board To Accept Auditor General's Recommendations

Arizona's state board responsible for helping school districts keep their facilities up to par said it will heed auditors' recommendations for improvements.

According to the Associated Press, a pending lawsuit filed by districts and education groups contends the Arizona state Legislature has shorted the districts about $2 million for capital projects over the past decade.

On Friday, in response to the suit, Arizona School Facilities Board Executive Director Paul Bakalis accepted recommendations by the Auditor General's Office.

Those include detailing eligibility requirements for renovation money, consistently documenting assessments, and better tracking completion of projects.
