Cuthbert--Big book-keeping problems in the Randolph County School System.

Auditors discover some employees were overpayed during the 2001 fiscal year. The report also found some reimbursement claims to the state and federal government were wrong.

Superintendent Bobby Jenkins says the mistakes were not intentional, but his office needs to do a better job with record keeping, "When you have a payroll clerk that is set up to handle 300 employees and you have a lot of people that were sending in time sheets then there were some missing. I guess they didn't dot the i's and cross the t's on the time sheets to make sure those were right."

The school system's budget has grown from 10 million dollars to 15 million. Jenkins says the extra work means he needs to bring in extra office staff to prevent book-keeping mistakes from happening.
