What’s in Your Superintendent’s Wallet?

HINDS COUNTY, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi state auditor Shad White has found “alarming” spending practices in the Hinds County School District, saying the district has kept poor control of its credit cards and bank accounts. An assistant superintendent was responsible for more than $50,000 in improper spending, including starting a contract for a personal car allowance without permission from the district’s school board. The auditor also reports the district spent $2 million on tablets and laptop computers without taking competitive bids. The Hinds County School District has about 5600 students in several small towns outside of Jackson.
