  An audit of the Missouri Department of Higher Education takes issue with a now-defunct the loan program it still oversees.

The Advantage Missouri program paid out a total of $8 million in student loans from 1998 to 2005. The audit finds that $5.2 million of those $8 million have still not been repaid.

  

Auditor Nicole Galloway said there are no procedures to monitor and resolve amounts due on defaulted loans, and that higher ed officials do not know the current status of each outstanding loan or whether it’s collectible.

Missouri's education department says it's removing schoolchildren's Social Security numbers from a state database.

The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education said in an audit report released Wednesday it will stop the practice by the end of June 2016.

The state audit report said collecting Social Security numbers for the student-level record system wasn't necessary and put children at risk in case of a data breach.

The 911 Personnel Transition Committee has announced key transition dates for the 911 call center project. The project will build a new call center on the Boone County Law Enforcement Campus.

Treasurer Nicole Galloway said the financial responsibilities will transition over on January 1, 2014.

“Boone County will start to fully fund the operations and reimburse the city for the joint communications and 911 operations and this is when that new sales tax revenue will be available,” Galloway said. “So really it’s using the revenue as the voters intended.”
