SEATTLE — State auditors say Seattle Public Schools must pay back nearly $500,000 of federal money that they did not spend appropriately, according to the Seattle Times.

The newspaper says auditors found the district spend $483,862 of the dropout-prevention grant that were not part of the original grant application.

The Times says auditors also found the district claimed more students for its federal Indian Education grant and by doing so received $6,530 more than it should have.

The district says they agree with state auditors and they take responsibility for their actions, according to the Times.
