Pennsylvania Auditor General Eugene DePasquale met with Philadelphia schools Superintendent William Hite at District headquarters Thursday to announce that his office had begun poring through the District's multi-billion-dollar budget.

The audit will include accounts of the District's academic performance, financial stability, school safety, and administrative governance, DePasquale said.

"The goal of the audit is to help the entity that we're auditing, in this case that's the Philadelphia School District," he said. "Who are we really trying to help?

"The kids and the families and the taxpayers of the area. Some of that may end up being criticism, some of it may be praise, but that's the goal of the audit."
