Audit: Lax book inventory costs LAUSD millions

LOS ANGELES The inspector general's office randomly sampled 21 /*LAUSD*/ high schools and found that the school system has an inefficient textbook inventory system.

In one instance, auditors discovered that $500,000 worth of textbooks sat unused for years in a district warehouse.

The elementary schools do not have an inventory system.

The district says a new book-tracking system will not be online for another several months.
