Staff from Kentucky Auditor Adam Edelen's office were at Central Office Wednesday to investigate allegations made last week by the district's budget director.
Edelen spokeswoman Stephenie Hoelscher said she did not know how long the special investigation would take.
Kentucky Department of Education spokeswoman Nancy Rodriguez said staff talked with Fayette County school district officials to obtain some general information about fund balances. However, she said they "did not render a final opinion in this or any other matter."
"The Office of the State Auditor has agreed to conduct an independent audit of accounting transactions and other concerns raised recently," said Rodriguez. She said the department will assist the auditor as needed
