Woonsocket to consider state police probe


The Woonsocket School Committee is considering asking state police to investigate budgeting errors in its school system that now faces a $10 million deficit.

The Woonsocket Call reported that the panel will vote Wednesday on whether to request a state police investigation.

A proposed letter to state police said the panel wants to know whether it was given “full and accurate financial” information about school finances or whether data was manipulated or falsely presented.

An audit revealed in December that the school district overspent its $59 million budget by $2.7 million in the fiscal year that ended in June.
