Audit of Wilkes-Barre Area School District by the PA Auditor General

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


For years, the Wilkes-Barre Area School District has practiced wasteful spending of taxpayer dollars with our students paying the ultimate price. 

In October, PA Auditor General Eugene DePasquale audited the Scranton School District, stating, "The problem with Scranton School District's finances is not about revenue; it's about wasteful spending and general mismanagement." His report: click here

Sign this petition to encourage our Auditor General to perform an audit of the Wilkes Barre Area School District in order to: 

  1. Hault any more wasteful spending of taxpayer dollars on the consolidation project until an audit is complete
  2. Identify contracts that have not gone through the appropriate RFP/renewal process, yet continue to be paid by taxpayer dollars
  3. Highlight where the district has continued to spend money egregiously instead of investing that money into the appropriate areas: ie, educational resources, staff development, training, arts education, building maintenance/renovations 
  4. Secure recommendations from an independent agency on how to best move forward financially to ensure every student has access to a high quality education
