NEW CASTLE — The New Castle Area School Board has postponed public discussion of an audit conducted by the Pennsylvania Auditor General’s department.

The state audit for the 2008-09 and 2009-10 school years was on the board’s work session agenda Monday.

However, president David DiGiammarino said at the meeting that the board is postponing discussion until the district receives the final report.

Members of the auditor general’s department met with administrators and a majority of the nine-member school board in October to discuss a draft report.

Susan Woods, spokeswoman for the auditor general’s office, said Tuesday that once a draft report is given, there are “discussions back and forth” before a final report is issued.
