ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A forensic study of a Pennsylvania school district found several instances of inappropriate spending and waste, including losing $20,000 from an account used to help homeless students.

The Morning Call reported Friday (https://bit.ly/2pAXyRC ) that the report on the Allentown School District, completed by a local forensic accounting firm, didn’t find any illegal activities.

However, it noted the school’s business office didn’t have a written policy on using petty cash and the office once used student activity funds to buy beer at a golf fundraiser.

The report concluded the school’s former chief financial officer didn’t have the education or experience needed to lead a business office.

He’s since been transferred to a newly created administrative position.
