KANSAS CITY — The results of a state audit of the Kansas City School District will be released next week.

State auditor Tom Schweich said a news conference will be held Tuesday in Kansas City to present the findings of an audit focused on the district's operations.

Results of an audit of the district's financial conditions were released in September 2010. That audit recounted how a desegregation case filed in 1977 put an end to dilapidated facilities and pumped about $2 billion into the district.

But with that money running out and enrollment declining, officials have approved a radical school closure and job-cutting plan. The audit found those steps helped but that the district needed to continue watching its budget closely.
