ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An audit report recently released by the state shows problems with Dougherty County School finances. But school official say most of the problems have been solved.

The audit covered the fiscal year that ended in June 2013. Chief Financial officer Ken Dyer says since highly publicized problems with federal grant money a few years ago the school system has worked hard to get back into full compliance.


 Dyer says they hired a new Title One Federal Programs Director to get them back on track.

“She’s a seasoned employee and a seasoned title on administrator and we are pleased with the work she has been doing and we think that she will have us back into full compliance this year hopefully,” says Ken Dyer.

In 2012, the state froze about 20 million dollars in Title One money, but the system eventually did get that money.

Dyer says the most recent audit only found a few problems.
