San Diego Schools Told To Repay $13.4 Million In Lunch Funds

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- The San Diego Unified School District has been ordered to repay $13.4 million that state authorities claim it improperly diverted from a lunch program for poor children.

U-T San Diego says the Department of Education ordered repayment. District and state officials will meet on June 21 to discuss the matter.

The state says the district improperly took money from the subsidized lunch program and spent it on other cafeteria costs, including salaries and utilities.

The district denies wrongdoing and says it used the money cover immediate needs because of delays in federal funding.
