STAUNTON, Va. (AP) - The state auditor of public accounts says the Superintendent of the Virginia School for the Deaf and Blind, along with other school administrators, have potentially been misusing state funds.

The News Leader reports (https://bit.ly/28XNNIA) the state auditor released an audit report of the school for the period of July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2015. It says Superintendent Pat Trice, Director of Operations Janice Rankin and an administrative assistant haven’t been documenting the time spent working on the VSDB foundation, and haven’t been properly reimbursing the state for time spent.

The report recommends the school and foundation work together to develop a method for reimbursement of salaries associated with state employees performing foundation duties.

Trice told auditors in a letter that the school and the foundation would work to correct the problem.

The newspaper wasn’t able to reach Trice or Rankin for comment.
