Stockton Educators Want Money Back

Sponsored by:

Education officials in San Joaquin County want the money back they mistakenly gave to some school districts.

Officials with the San Joaquin County Office of Education say because of accounting mistakes, they gave the eleven districts $1.5 million more than they should have for special education programs. The districts are part of the San Joaquin Special Education Local Plan Area.

In February, school superintendents are scheduled to approve a plan that would allow the districts to repay the money over three years.
