LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Jefferson County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Donna Hargens proposed an optional district audit at a school board meeting held on Monday night.

The audit would cost the district $125,000 to conduct which is the equivalent to hiring two additional teachers. Many parents have mixed reviews on the necessity of such a costly audit.

The board members also held discussions proposing adding seatbelts to 47 district school buses that will soon be replaced.

The JCPS School Board voted 5 to 2 in support of the audit, however no vote was held on whether to add seatbelts to the new replacement buses.
