(KMOV.com) -- The Rockwood School District said it’s trying to repair its reputation as a great district following a recent state audit. The audit found the Rockwood School District overpaid a construction company more than a $1 million for projects.

One of the board members approved the contracts for the construction company that employs him. Since the audit, that board member has resigned.

The Rockwood School District said it has a detailed plan to make everything right before the state follows up in the coming months.

“We look at the past. We look at things that were mistakes,” said Kim Cranston, Rockwood School District’s Chief Communications Officer, “And say how can we make sure we never do those again? What can we do better, so we can continue to serve children.”

Rockwood also said it will update board policies to comply with the law and have more oversight on spending. The will try to collect the money it overpaid as well.
