St. Louis Public Schools to pay state for attendance fraud - St. Louis Business Journal
St. Louis Public Schools will reimburse the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education $145,000 for funds it received due to attendance fraud.
An audit in 2011 found that the principal of Patrick Henry Downtown Academy had directed the school secretary to alter attendance records in 2008, 2009 and 2010., the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. The altered attendance numbers helped the school meet federal No Child Left Behind requirements and allowed the school to receive state funding.
