In his first major project for the Springfield School Board, the internal auditor has released a check list on bond issues.
Board President Dr. Tom Prater says the district rated well in all areas covered by the review but suggesting tightening up on procedures used to account for spending on specific projects. Prater says steps have already been taken to correct that problem.
The school board was also told student counseling services are understaffed and under funded, something Prater wants to address in future budget sessions.
The board also heard a report on school security, Police are going beyond the traditional lockdown by training teachers and staff to identify and avert potential problems.
