Daniels College of Business Accounting Professor James Sorensen called the Adams 12 School District budgeting process unethical and is featured in this news report.

As students returned to class this week in the Adams 12 Five Star School District, we’re learning about big changes in the way the district will spent taxpayer money and what it tells the public about its budget.

The changes coming just months after a FOX31 Denver investigation revealed questionable accounting practices in the state’s fifth-largest school district.

Our story earlier this year got the attention of parents and school board members who demanded action from district leaders, including the superintendent.

Critics say the district was padding the budget with inflated expenses while it was cutting educational programs.
