As I note now, Mr. Malone is no longer the principal of the high school and is comfortably ensconced on the board where he has pledged to restore normalcy by doing what he does best, nothing other than appearing benevolent with other people's money.<quoted text>
Again if he was that bad of a principal, then why didn't the BOE remove him.
What does AP science have to do with math? What about AP biology or AP history? Your focus and one-tract view is a flaw.
Please provide the PROOF that all of the monies were made good by the taxpayers and parents of the athletes. What is the AMOUNT. You don't know. You have no PROOF. You forgot to include the millage from the pipeline and the money we receive from the state in your list. The schools have income other than taxpayers you know (or maybe you don't).
I'm sure you know the EXACT AMOUNT that was (mis)used for petty politics gains by yourself, which would have been put to good use by the girls basketball team through a donation. I would suggest that's what you do next election. Unless you don't agree with CHILDREN FIRST.
While Mr. Harves was enriching himself under Mr. Malone's less than watchful eye, the athletic teams continued to function and spend money. The money that was supposed to be raised in the name of the children that never reached its intended beneficiaries was made up by other people's money, namely the parents of the athletes and the taxpayers. In my opinion I would bet we lost collectively as an organization and as a community over $1,000,000. Over the past 13 years that Mr. Malone was charged by board policy with overseeing the groups that raised money from his parents, for his kids, for his school's programs, the numbers are staggering.
When I travel around the GWOC and see what other significantly less affluent districts are able to afford, I am saddened for the children who have been malignantly cheated by those entrusted with looking out for their welfare.
Where is the $438,000 that was supposedly recaptured?
