OBION COUNTY Tenn.- South Fulton Elementary School's PTO voted to dissolve Monday night, after accusations that some members were misusing its funds.

"I'm really surprised that this is going on, because I thought they put the kids first," said concerned grandparent, Brenda McMillin.

The school's PTO is not affiliated with the Obion County School System, but Superintendent David Huss said he is aware of the issue. "It concerns me that our kids could potentially not have funds available to spend on them for activities that would help benefit the students of South Fulton," said Huss.

WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News learned that The state comptroller's office is auditing the PTO's records, to find if the claims are true.

The leftover funds from the PTO's account are being held in a restricted school account until comptroller's gives South Fulton Elementary clearance to use the money.

"It makes me a lot more wary about handing out money," said parent, Jeff Morris.

If the comptroller does find that the funds were misused, those accused could face prosecution by the district attorney's office.
