Citizens Petition to Audit The Philadelphia School District

 We the undersigned citizens request and demand the Philadelphia City Council, the School Reform Commission and the State Legislature take the necessary and appropriate action to ensure that the School District Finances and Operations be audited, every year, as required and specified in the Philadelphia Home Rule Charter.

Half our Schools are the lowest performing schools in the State.  Required background checks on Bus Drivers and School Police Officers are NOT being performed.  We, the undersigned, understand that there are so many more Crisis issues.  All this crisis and for over 15 years there has been NO independent review, audit or oversight examination by the City Controller’s Office as specifically required by the Philadelphia Charter.  My signature indicates my demand to enforce the Controller’s requirement to Audit the Philadelphia School District:
