A state audit of student transcripts at Douglass Mid-High School reveals 4 of 5 seniors are not on track to graduate, sparking calls for future auditing of all Oklahoma City high school transcripts.

The audit shows years of academic mismanagement by administrators, and students are the ones who are suffering the consequences, Oklahoma City Superintendent Karl Springer said.

“This is something I hate to see happen under my watch,” he said Thursday, two days after the results of the audit were handed over to district officials by the state Education Department.
