Audit questions school spending under ex-director

BATON ROUGE - A state audit raises questions about more than $60,000 in expenses by a former director of the public school run by Southern University in Baton Rouge.

The Legislative audit says Derek Morgan made disbursements from a Southern University Laboratory School account totaling more than $60,000 that may be personal in nature.

In his response to the audit, Morgan said he reimbursed the school by cashier's check to cover the expenses listed as questionable plus $469 more.

Morgan also said he now has limited access to school records and therefore is limited in his ability to prove the reasonableness of expenses.

Morgan left the school last year, saying he wanted to look at other job opportunities.
