|From the Reporter|
|A VOSD review found schools across San Diego Unified contradicted district guidelines and spent federal money meant for disadvantaged students on medical supplies, athletic equipment and custodial supplies.|
|Three principals blamed clerical errors and said they would pay for the items from other funds. Others weren’t sure why it happened. One defended it. And one (Normal Heights Elementary) didn’t respond.|
|The Big Picture|
|The spending raises a red flag about how closely San Diego Unified watches its money for disadvantaged kids, funding that’s bound by rules to ensure money isn’t spent on basic costs the district is expected to shoulder for all schools.|
