Pleasanton School District Unable to Track Where Millions of Funds Went

Not sure if anybody caught the large article in the Herald on Friday but a citizen's committee and a district hired consultant was unable to determine where more than $6 million was spent. This after the district refinanced bonds that former Attorney General Jerry Brown said violated state law and cost Pleasanton taxpayers an additional $9.28 million on school construction bonds.
Interesting how the article stated that the consultant is suggesting the District require that district leadership attend ethics training.
Sounds like there are a lot of problems at the district now between illegal refunding of bonds, not knowing where all the bond money was spent, and losing a suit against a developer which sets the amount of money the district is to receive from new housing.
