OKLAHOMA CITY - State education officials are asking for an investigative audit of the Butner School District after learning school records are missing.

The state Board of Education agreed during its regular meeting Thursday to seek an investigative audit of the Seminole County school district.

State Assistant Superintendent James White says an independent auditor hired by the district could not locate all records necessary for an audit and noted the possibility of problems with the district's IRS withholdings in salaries.

About two weeks ago, Superintendent Mike K. Bryan was dismissed after a hearing involving the use of the district's credit card for personal purchases.

Bryan could not be reached for comment Thursday.
