Indian River has NO monthly financial statements, budgets, nothing showing ANY money whatsoever on their website. Way to be transparent! Hard to look for your yearly budgets with no information. What are you hiding? How much money did Miller mess with in the finances? Is the state going to have to bail you guys out? Why are teachers being told not to plug in anything that isn’t normally plugged in inside the classrooms?
I’m hearing Miller absconded with a ton of money, up to $14-15 million according to some. Where is the transparency on this issue? That is some very serious coin. How can we trust Indian River to safeguard student data in the BRINC empire when the district can’t even safeguard their own money? Oh wait, I’m sorry, the taxpayers money. This is going to make any district financial meltdown in the past look like Romper Room.
Why is Bunting making this seem like some ordinary hiccup on the news? This is the problem in Delaware. Too many figures in power who think the people don’t need to know the truth. Too many legislators who think they are the last point of transparency. Not this time. Come clean Indian River so we can all see what’s going on. If the state winds up bailing you guys out we all pay the price for that one. Better to tell the truth now than face the wrath of the entire state.
The fact that all your financial information is missing does not bode well for this district. I have to wonder… when this district knew what happened in Brandywine with Patrick Miller, why would they hire a financial guy who basically plea bargained his way out of criminal charges? Delaware deserves better than this.
Updated, 8:18am: This is being referred to as Millergate around Sussex County and Indian River School District. It’s not looking good the district will be able to make payroll going into October. This is NOT good folks.
