Auditors: End advance word for community colleges

Associated Press

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina’s top auditor says the country’s third-largest community college system should stop tipping off campus administrators weeks before a record check is coming.

A report Tuesday by State Auditor Beth Wood’s office found records at Durham Technical Community College were altered or forged ahead of a double-check into how many students were enrolled.

The head count determines how much teaching funds community colleges get. The Durham school got $17 million in instructional funds in the year that ended in June.

State auditors blamed two former Durham Tech employees for fudging the records. Durham Tech President William Ingram says the college’s senior leadership didn’t know it was happening.

State auditors say the community college system’s central office should quit giving campuses two-weeks’ notice of which courses get headcounts.
