The annual audit of the Bibb County School District uncovers some disturbing figures.

Auditors determined that over the last six months of 2012, school administrators spent more than $26 million without board approval. The expenditures came during the final months of the reign of Superintendent Romaine Dallemand.

In response to the findings, the School Board said it has lowered the Superintendent's spending authority from $500,000 to $100,000, hired a purchasing director, and trained school board members.

After granting Dallemand an enhanced contract at the end of 2012, school board members agreed to buy out his contract a short time later for $350,000 plus benefits.
