Sounds like the Supts. may have violated the model procurement laws and regulations either deliberatly or through ignorance and quite likely with the knowledge and encouragement of a wanna-be coach board member, and also employees working under grant money were rehired even after the grant money was gone. Deals were done, contracts signed,no adjustments for loss of students, and then the next Supt. was left holding the bag.

You sound like a (T'd off) Attorney. Your words are specifically chosen. In fact, a graduate who knows the system well.This has been going on for years in Monticello. Lots of leaders of the community have cut on the cake a time or two.......

you may be right but we will see! I think there is a lot of "bunk" going around on this mess. I doubt any big investigation will occur over this. An audit has been done and I bet that is all that will happen. There won't be any big jail sentence, etc. as they say sh-- happens so live with it and get on down the road.

Radio reported that the KSP will do a "forensic audit" of Monticello records? Not sure what that means? Will they look at everything like expenses, payments, receipts, if board minutes show approval for spending, and if bid laws and state approval was followed? Just not sure of what it will include...just a spot check or an indept look at what happened, who's at fault, and were any laws broken??? Maybe someone can shed some light?

I have alot of respect for alot of people whom passed through the Monticello school system. The town seems to have done a 180 in the past 25 years. I can, but won't name off several professional individuals and very intellegent folks, that I really wouldn't want to see get up out of the chair. It's just unbelievable knowing the Alumni and the type of people they are to let this slide. I really don't think it will slide by!

What about the auditors ? Did they surface issues over the years. I bet the entire board was not aware of all the issues. Sometimes people are very quick to place blame and have no idea what really went on

Misappropriation of funds is illegal, but bad decisions are not. What happened in this case that got them in such debt? Doesn't the whole board make the final decisions?
Making bad decisions is not illegal? Well, as a Judge told me once "ignorance of the law is no excuse". Guess the same or more should apply to any of the officials or board members who knew the law and did it anyway.

I was going through my junk mail Today and happened to notice a fund-raising advertisement. It is for schools, church, club, team or youth group. you can make a 40% profit, selling kitchen knives, utinsils, cookbooks, gift sets, stoneware, soy wax candles, or quick mixes. A 40% PROFIT!!!Instead of raising taxes,I Thought this might be an idea to save the school.Anyone interested???

keep it under the 20,000 mark and bids do not have to be taken nor does it take board approval although i would say that some board members probably knew of what was going on. not all of them but maybe one or two.
Being a board member, it would be each member"s responsibility to know what was going on at these meetings,and if wrong doing was going on,then it should have been reported, you are responsible for our tax $$$$$.
