Audit Will Examine Spending at College

Millions of dollars of parcel tax money intended for faculty salaries in the Peralta Community College District may have been misspent on salaries, vacation, sick leave and other fringe benefits for nonacademic staff, says a public watchdog group that has pushed for an independent audit of the spending.

Alameda County voters approved Measure B, a parcel tax, in 2012 to provide Peralta’s four East Bay campuses with an extra $8 million per year to “support affordable college education including: providing core academic programs including math, science and English,” with “no funds for administrators’ salaries.”
