Pittsburgh Firm to Review Millcreek School District Business Operations

Posted: Updated:

The Millcreek School Board is now moving forward with plans to pinpoint problems within the district's business office.

On Monday evening, the school board voted to hire Pittsburgh-based accounting firm Alpern Rosenthal to conduct a comprehensive review of the district's business operations.

According to Millcreek Schools Superintendent William Hall, the firm will evaluate the current policies and procedures of the district and conduct in-depth interviews with employees.

It's a two phase project that will cost up to $140,000.

A recent audit  revealed that the district has been misusing funds and improperly transferring money.

According to Hall, this review is a necessary step to get the business office back in order.

"It's just been something that has been neglected and as a result some of the information that has come out has hurt us financially," said Hall.  "I think it's time that we do whatever we can to protect the information and protect the integrity of the information that is coming out of the department.  I think everybody is in favor of that."

During the committee meeting, the school board also voted in favor of receiving bids for phase one of a facility improvement project.  It's a $9 million project that includes structural and safety upgrades to building throughout the district.   It also includes upgrades to McDowell Intermediate High School, McDowell High School, and improvements to Gus Anderson Football Field.
