According to a statement from the
district, Barbara Mincks - who worked under the title of education
management information system coordinator
- has been removed from that
position and placed on paid administrative leave pending further investigation
of irregularities identified by the state auditor.
The school district says it was notified this week by the state auditor that
Mincks, who works in the financial office, had, "engaged in the
manipulation and falsification of financial records in a manner suggesting that
a theft of public funds had occurred."
Neither city schools nor city police are talking yet about
how much money is involved nor providing any other details.
The statement from the school district says that all available measures are
being taken to secure the funds and there will be no disruption of financial services
as a result of the alleged theft.
Barbara Mincks lives in Salem Township.
