Audit says Florida charter school overstated enrollment

From The Palm Beach Post: A Palm Beach County, Fla., charter school got nearly $160,000 more in state education money than it was entitled to receive after overstating 2011-12 enrollment. A draft audit from Inspector General Lung Chiu says that Mavericks High School in Palm Springs was given funds for at least 56 students who did not attend the school at all during two 11-day "survey periods" last year. The survey periods are used to establish enrollment figures on which the department bases its per-student funding to schools.
