DES MOINES, Iowa (KCRG) - State Auditor Rob Sand is warning Iowa school districts to pay more careful attention to collecting and handling of student activity funds.

The advisory comes after an investigation of 15 community school districts (CSD) found nearly $270,000 collected through student-related activities such as admissions, fundraising events, or other activities was misused in the last decade.

Sand said there has also been a general misunderstanding of how to collect and disburse the funds.

In the report released Monday, Sand did not identify the 15 school districts involved in the investigation, but asked that districts across the state review their guidelines with faculty and staff to prevent any further misuse of funds.
