School Board Drops Oversight of Capital Expenses

School Board members must sign off on capital-expenditure contracts, according to Richmond Public Schools policy. Apparently, for nearly a year, that hasn't been the case.
Instead, since July Superintendent Yvonne Brandon has been providing the board with a monthly briefing on contracts of more than $15,000. At an April 4 meeting, for example, the board received updates that included an undisclosed amount for portable radios,$21,500 in masonry repairs at Mary Munford Elementary School and $29,621 to renovate the entrance steps at Bellevue Elementary.
The discrepancy was noted in a recent report from the school system's Internal Audit Services, which recommended that the board approve contracts as policy requires. In response, the board voted 7-2 on April 4 to temporarily suspend the policy while board members Dawn Page and Chandra Smith review it. Kimberly Gray and Norma Murdoch-Kitt voted against the measure.
