State Audit finds YCSD overpaid former teacher

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A state audit found that the Youngstown City School District overpaid a former teacher after the district no longer employed her.

Ohio Auditor of State Keith Faber reported that the district overpaid the teacher just over $6,000 after she resigned from the district on September 28, 2017. 

The auditor has issued a finding for recovery to see the misspent money is returned.

"I cannot overstate the importance of proper internal controls," Faber said. "It is critical that the district get their accounting practices in order so that taxpayers do not end up paying for any more mistakes."

After the teacher resigned, the district was found to have paid her $1,543 over four additional pay periods. The error resulted in a gross overpayment of $6,172 and a net overpayment of $4,219.
