MANATEE -- Manatee school officials and the public Monday will learn the details of a forensic audit of the district's troubled finances.
Auditors are set to release the 200-page report at 2 p.m. at the district's administration building in downtown Bradenton.
The forensic audit began a month after former superintendent Tim McGonegal resigned after revealing a $3.4 million budget deficit caused by $8 million in overspending. External auditors later revealed overspending to be closer to $11 million.
In the wake of fragmented public trust, the school board hired Tampa-based law firm Trenam Kemker to oversee the selection of a forensic audit team to investigate the cause of the deficit. The global consulting firm Navigant was chosen in October.
