Kentucky State Auditor Adam Edelen on Wednesday accepted the Jefferson County Public Schools’ request to audit the school district.

Edelen was joined by JCPS board members, Superintendent Donna Hargens and Mayor Greg Fischer in announcing details of the audit which was approved by the board this week, following a recommendation from the superintendent.

Edelen says his office will begin work immediately and he expects to complete the audit in the next several months.

WFPL’s Devin Katayama spoke with Edelen, who says because his review isn’t based on any specific complaint, the scope of the audit will be broad.
