MassFiscal Calls on Auditor Bump to Investigate BPS 

(BOSTON) — MassFiscal wrote to State Auditor Suzanne Bump urging a thorough investigation into Boston Public Schools (BPS) and its use of student activity accounts. Recent reports allege school administrators used these funds in violation of IRS laws, including to pay staff under the table. According to the published reports, BPS officials covered up their knowledge of the misuse of funds for several months.

“BPS has played fast and loose with its budget. The School Department and the City of Boston have thus lost credibility. Your thoughtful and careful review of the goings on at BPS would be welcomed by taxpayers as necessary and prudent,” stated Paul D. Craney, spokesperson for Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. 

A copy of the letter to Auditor Bump may be found at here.  

Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance advocates for fiscal responsibility, transparency, and accountability in state government and increased economic opportunity for the people of our Commonwealth.
