November 27, 2008 1:36:18 PM PST
The L.A. Unified School District has settled a dispute with the contractor that installed its payroll system.The consulting firm has agreed to pay more than $8 million to the district, and forgive millions more in unpaid invoices.

District leaders say the company improperly installed the system nearly two years ago.

It resulted in some employees being underpaid, overpaid or not paid at all.

The settlement amount only covers about half the money the district paid to fix the problems.
