The Peach County Board of Education will host a special called meeting Tuesday at 7 p.m. at its main board office to release to the public a report of its 2005 special purpose local option sales tax expenditures.
Peach County school officials are reviewing expenditures that may point to $260,000 in improperly spent funds in connection with the construction of Hunt and Kay Road elementary schools, Superintendent Susan Clark said.
The money in question may have been spent on board efforts in researching other potential sites for the construction of the long-delayed schools, though the district had already purchased property for the projects, Clark said.
Though the board approved the construction of the schools at the end of 2006, the groundbreaking did not take place until 2008 because of board disagreement over the location of the schools.

Schools are supposed to submit a report of SPLOST expenditures to the Georgia Department of Audits by Wednesday.
The board had previously planned to release the report in a Monday meeting.
