The Los Alamos Public Schools district released more information Friday afternoon in regard to a state audit.
Los Alamos was one of 34 school districts to receive an audit letter from the state.
In the letter addressed to Superintendent Gene Schmidt from PED Secretary Hanna Skandera, the state education department is questioning data that “showed significant and unusual increases in the areas of special education — both in the number of students identified and the services provided — and in expenses for teacher training and experience.
“These increases — inconsistent with recent trends — suggest abnormalities or potential errors in the data provided by school districts.”
Skandera said in the letter that based on the analysis of statewide data, Los Alamos School District is reporting an unusually high rate of special education students, exceeding the average statewide growth by 200 percent.
