CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia lawmakers want state education officials to weigh in on the recent and sweeping audit of the public schools system.
A House-Senate subcommittee assigned to review the audit is seeking a response from the Department of Education for its November interim meeting.
The lawmakers expect to hear from Vision Shared next month. The economic development group hosted a series of forums on the audit around the state this summer.
Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin commissioned the audit and requested the forums in advance of the 2013 legislative session.
The subcommittee reported its discussion Wednesday to the House-Senate Joint Education Committee.
Education official Chuck Heinlein earlier told legislators that his department has already begun to embrace audit recommendations. Heinlein said those steps include saving $1.2 million by erasing 20 unfilled positions.
