School Employees Suspended In FBI Probe
Associated Press - December 9, 2014 6:23 am
A Kansas school district has recovered nearly half a million dollars from the estate of a former technology director who's believed to have embezzled district money before killing himself.
A Kansas school district superintendent says two employees have been placed on administrative leave in connection with an ongoing FBI investigation.
Maize Superintendent Doug Powers tells KWCH-TV (http://bit.ly/1qoEwx6 ) the probe doesn’t involve a district student but didn’t say what federal authorities are investigating. School board members didn’t publicly address the Nov. 18 search at their Monday meeting but Powers gave his first update to the press.
Powers says he hasn’t received an update from the FBI since the search at the Maize Educational Support Center.
The district reset student and parent passwords to its online gradebook and student data system after the search. Powers says no information was compromised and the move was precautionary.
The employees’ names and positions haven’t been released.
