New computers meant for Richmond’s public school students sat in a city warehouse for several months — and in some cases several years — before being installed in schools, according to a city auditor’s report released this week. Of the 500 computers discovered in boxes at the school division’s Parker Field warehouse, seven were purchased in 2006 and three in 2007. The rest were purchased in March and September 2009, the report said. The computers were valued at $338,500.
