KALIHI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Eight months after Halau Lokahi Charter School was forced to close, the state auditor says poor oversight contributed to the school's closing.

According to the audit, the Charter School Commission staff failed to recognize the school's critical financial problems.

The state auditor says the charter school commission staff had access to information that clearly indicated the severity of the problem but did not act quickly enough to save the school from closing.

The school's charter was revoked on March 30.
