you would be surprised.

I thought the school system had routine audits at the schools from a local CPA.

Unfortunately bookkeepers can make books look in order when dealing with cash. Though I cant believe the moddle school has that much cash. Its not loke they do a bunch of fundraisers.

I know a bookkeeper can do that to cover up theft.

So I guess the new principal at the middle school noticed something?

wonder what happened for someone to notice? hadn't she been the bookkeeper for several years?
all about facts

Aint yall surprised to see the headlines today in the Enterprise? Finally, someone is saying something about the bookkeeper of the school giving the school a bad check for almost $7000.00.I want to know if the BOE has turned this case over to law enforcement for them to investigate or if it is going to be an in house investigation and cover up like it was a few years ago when a Middle School Principal was caught stealing and "resigned". Paper says she is suspended with pay.

I could understand if a private business owner wanted to keep an employee embezzlement hush hush but this woman has stolen thousands of taxpayers dollars.She should be prosecuted no matter what .

I guess the new principal doesnt want this to get out because it will be a reflection of her!
sad

Well, I am a taxpayer and although I don't have a child at that school, I too am curious to know if charges have been filed. If there is enough evidence to support a suspension (with pay, no less) then there should be a police report or charges filed or whatever it is they do. There is absolutely no way this can just go away quietly. It can't be swept under the rug and ignored...too many people know about it and now it has been reported in the paper. Somebody will have to do something. I am curious to see what the next course of action will be. I know I don't agree with the suspension with pay.

she must have been terminated or resigned that position was advertised on the main website a couple of weeks ago.

Oh and also FYI - just like any job her supervisor (in this case the former Principal) signs off that everything is in order. HMMMMMMM!!!
just wondering

So are you saying that Sherry Berry knew what she was doing and chose to look the other way, or that she was signing off without double checking everything was right?

Working under both the old and new principals I can say that our former principal never seemed to care about fundraisers. Our new principal is OBSESSED with fundraisers. She started selling ice cream and took over one club's fundraiser, the school store. She did have the old bookkeeper and the other guy who got terminated toing around selling pickles. She takes half of all of the clubs proceeds. I have heard her say that she only took that job to pay for kids college, so hhhhhmmmmmmmmmmm..... I am curious to know when all the money was stolen. I heard that check was written recently.

I for one am proud to see when principals work hard to earn money to buy incentives to promote student achievement and teacher performance. There is no better way for the money to be used. Middle school doesnt get the same support as elementary schools, and she works hard to try to make up for the difference.
