Oh, Boy, is teacher ‘Professional Development’ fun in Louisville!
Professional Development is what educators call continuing education for teachers.
Check this comment:
“(An administrator has in the past provided) professional development (off campus) with a corkage fee for alcohol showing on the invoice for payment, and rebuked financial services for questioning the expenditure.”
In other words, the taxpayer picked up the tab for alcoholic beverages served during a teacher “professional development” activity. Sound incredible?
This gem comment appears on page 31 in the new “Final Report of a Study of the ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE AND CENTRAL OFFICE STAFFING, FUNCTIONS, AND OPERATIONS” from the Jefferson County audit.
The auditors also took issue with $1.56 million being spent on feeding adult employees in the school system. The auditors said this money “should have been directed to the students.”
