Auditor’s office tight lipped on school-issued computer findings

After reporting that pornography and other explicit materials were found during an audit of student-issued laptops, the state auditor’s office is denying The Clarion-Ledger’s request for information on the districts reviewed, saying the investigation is ongoing.

And it also has not contacted the districts reviewed or state education officials. Nor has it clarified the scope of the alleged misuse.

The state auditor’s office in a report issued last week said nine districts failed to enforce policies for filtering software required by federal law to prevent students from accessing explicit or harmful material on their school-issued computers.
