In response to a new audit that highlights a state employee's misuse of state resources during work hours, the Department of Education released this statement today:
SACRAMENTO--The California Department of Education responded today to the report issued by the California State Auditor.
"The Department has taken a number of steps that address issues raised in today's report by the State Auditor," said Communications Director Paul Hefner. "Prior to the report's release, the Department installed upgraded software that restricts employees from posting content to social media Web sites without authorization. The first supervisor named in the report has received additional training. In addition, while the Department was evaluating information provided by the Auditor, the employee involved voluntarily left employment with the Department."
