Georgia school system seeks audit to find $60,000

TRION, CHATTOOGA COUNTY (AP) - School officials in the northwest Georgia town of Trion have hired an outside auditor to find out where up to $60,000 from the school district's afterschool program went.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports ( that the school board this week hired a Rome accounting firm to investigate the funds.

Superintendent Phil Williams said no one is being accused of criminal wrongdoing.

Police say they're awaiting information from the audit before proceeding with a criminal investigation.

The probe was prompted when officials learned of a dramatic drop in revenue from the afterschool program, which charges families for providing supervision of schoolchildren.
