Joseph Griego, chairman of the Mora school board, says the district needs to watch its expenses more carefully.
He was responding to a special audit released last week that found that $64,000 was improperly diverted into a discretionary account. Griego said the account turned into something of a slush fund.
The board looked at the special audit, performed by State Auditor Hector Balderas’ office, during a meeting Tuesday night. Griego said the district gave Superintendent Dora Romero a number of directives for internal controls of finances.
