Case being referred to FBI
New superintendent asked for audit
In the latest of an on-going stream of highly revealing audits of improper activities in local school systems around Kentucky, Kentucky Auditor of Public Accounts Adam H. Edelen just released a new shocker on highly questionable payments to the recently retired superintendent in the Dayton Independent School District.
According to the Kentucky Enquirer’s coverage, which names Gary Rye as the former superintendent, the auditor says the former superintendent got nearly a quarter of a million dollars in unauthorized benefits.
Providing evidence of the seriousness of the findings, the Enquirer says:
“The findings have been turned over by Edelen to the FBI, Kentucky Teachers’ Retirement System and the Kentucky Department of Revenue.”
Go to the Enquirer’s article to see a really dramatic clip from the auditor’s press conference.
