GREENWOOD, Miss. (AP) - Officials from the Mississippi Department of Education are conducting a full audit of the Greenwood School District.

The Greenwood Commonwealth reports (https://bit.ly/1K0jZUm ) auditors arrived in the district Thursday and are expected to finish their work by the end of the school year.

A partial audit during the spring of 2014 found the district had violated 22 state process standards. That prompted the Commission on School Accreditation to downgrade the district’s accreditation status to “pending.”

The district regained full accreditation in December after problems found in the partial audit were resolved.

Greenwood schools Superintendent Montrell Greene says the district is “fully compliant and prepared” for the current examination.

Department of Education spokeswoman Jean Cook says there’s not yet a timeline to release results of the new audit.
