WRAL’s Cullen Browder Digs Into Questionable Spending By Ed Official

WRAL’s Cullen Browder dug into the questionable spending habits of former Granville Superintendent Tim Farley. The report included some pretty interesting stuff.

Here’s the meat of the story:

WRAL Investigates reviewed statements for the five credit cards and found thousands of dollars in technology purchases, convertible sports car rentals, two spa charges at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, an online order for a 12-pack of Heineken BeerTender Tubes, an Amazon Prime membership, non-itemized receipts from restaurants such as Dugans Pub, Atlantic Beer Garden and Whiskey Priest, and other purchases that appeared questionable. – WRAL, 11/5/14, Convertibles, beer tubes, spa: Auditors probing Granville schools’ spending

I sincerely hope Mr. Browder doesn’t stop there.

Granville School Officials Get Raises; No Board Approval

Top earners got bigger share of the education dollar pie in Granville County without the approval of the board education too, it seems. Either they have really fuzzy memories in Granville or their board needs a serious look at. What a mess.
OXFORD, N.C. — An audit released Friday found that Granville County school leaders, including the superintendent and associate superintendent, received large pay raises and contract extensions without the approval of the Board of Education.

“Most board members expressed that they were surprised to learn the details” of the contracts, according to Jill Wilson, an attorney with Brooks Pierce in Greensboro, who was hired by the school board to do the audit.

In several instances, the contracts noted that the board “voted unanimously” to approve pay hikes and other changes, but the auditor found that there was “absolutely no evidence” in the board’s meeting minutes or from board members’ recollections that the votes ever occurred.

I’m sure we’ll hear about this from the teachers with complaints about their pay scales right? *Crickets*

A couple of the findings from the audit: Continue reading
