What I want to know is why didn't they mention this person's age or religion? I guess they only do that when they want to disgrace a class of people.

That's it? That's all you got? What a pathetic troll. Most good one's will usually be more creative. You are a defeat onto yourself. I think you already know that though because otherwise how could you make such stup!d comments. You tell everyone to kill themselves it must be because you don't want to be the only one.

the way i see it you should move to a different city. you can not place all the blame on one person. i am very in tuned with this city, and many aspects of it. i think you need to get your head out of you A $$ and get all the facts before you go shouting out names of people.

Government is too big, nobody has time to watch and most of them too stupid anyway, that's why they work for the government.
I love it when they say such and such has made an accounting error of around 6 million $ or so.
That's quite a mistake now isn't it.
I go nuts when my checkbook does not balance to the penny.
Oh by the way since this is a school problem lets blame the teachers shall we.
We give the government money and they steal it, that about sums it up.
Be sure and vote yes on the increased taxes there is no end to.

When is someone going to do something about this awful school district? They can't manage their money, they can't keep their kids in school to graduate, they can't get their CSAP scores anywhere near where they should be - I thought after years of failing some outside entity would come in take over - if you're out there - PLEASE SEND HELP!!! The current administration is a failure, it's easy for anyone to see that.

Who is in charge of auditing the books for Adams County Schools? That person should be fired for dropping the ball.

It took 6 years before they realized she was stealing from them?

No wonder the school district never has any money. The employees are busy helping themselves to the free retirement fund.

Move to a different city - now who's talking out their A$$?? Should I not expect the Superintendent of the school district to know what is going on in his finance department? If you were at all as tuned into the city as you say you are, you should know what a train wreck that school district is and has been for years!

She should have been arrested for sher stupidity! Who steals money and puts it in your personal checking account?
What's more hilarious is it took the school district 6 years to figure it out! She's writing their checks to herself and nobody is the wiser.

What an embarressment to Adams County.

You need to get a clue. They got an award because they were so damn low to begin with, when they came up at all it was astounding! Here's the stats on the Colorado Dept of Ed. Website, read 'em and weap!

No one's watching the till. This is Commerce City we're talking about. You know, the absolute armpit of the metro area. 3/4 of the population are missing teeth and have IQ's of below 40. This will continue to happen again and again and again....

That is what happen's when the teacher's do not get a pay raise. That has to be a tough job, I could not do it. I would send all students out to pasture.

I don't think she was a teacher, most likely to be able to steal all that money she was an administrative employee.
