Philly School District Settles With Charter That Allegedly Faked Signatures

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The School Reform Commission tonight votes on an agreement settling allegations that a charter school fraudulently billed the district.

The district says it has settled allegations that former administrators at Imhotep Institute Charter High School forged guardians' signatures for the instruction of two special education students.

Investigators found that one of the students attended Imhotep for only half a year, and the other student's guardian was actually dead when the papers were to have been signed.

The district paid the charter based on those documents. Imhotep denies wrongdoing.

Under the agreement the school would reimburse the district $16,000.
