Two Bloomington High School South employees have been fired following a state audit that reported missing funds. Monroe County Community School Corporation Comptroller Tim Thrasher says one person formerly employed as a custodian broke into a safe, while the other former clerical employee failed to follow procedures for depositing cash receipts. He says he feels like the corporation has been paying attention to funds and will continue to improve their systems.
The audit report also showed problems in receipt control for Bloomington High School North and Clear Creek, Rogers, and Templeton elementary schools, though no funds from these schools were missing. Thrasher says the corporation is already working to solve issues at those schools. He says potential criminal charges are up to the State Board of Accounts and the Monroe County Prosecutor. Thrasher says another report focusing specifically on South’s situation will be released from the state in about two weeks. The names of the two former MCCSC employees are not being disclosed, and the amount of money missing has not been specified.
