Four Horrendous Facts from the Forensic Audit of WBCSD

1. Phase 1 found 1,343 Checks with no vendor names listed in the general ledger. That amounts to $8,305,032.95!

  • We don’t know who/where $8.3Million went!

2. Also, 61 Checks (no canceled check provided) with vendor names not listed in the general ledger. That is $352,498.53.

  • Another $352,000 that we don’t know where it went!

3. Also, 31 checks where vendor name was different in the general ledger. That is $19,640.

  • We need to see those checks of $19,640.

4. Also, 2 checks found in Bank Statement, no canceled check, and check number not in general ledger. Exactly $217,733.00.

  • Who received $217,733.00?

 

$8,305,032.95 + $352,498.53 + $19,640 + $217,733.00 = $8,894,904.48

ESSER III Funds Missing in WBCSD

In December 2023 $2.1 M was approved in ESSER III funds allocated for Facilities.

Public Record Request showed approximately $198,000 for Facilities was spent in 2023.

  • Where did $1.9 M of ESSER III funds go?

So now they want a Levy!

School Board Chair asked for financial suggestions for budgeting for 2024-2025 school year. The two NEW appointed trustees both made impassioned speeches asking for a Levy. They shared no knowledge about what the budgets were in the past or why it was needed. They did not acknowledge there is over $8 M unaccounted for!

Please come to the school board meetings and speak up. We definitely need to have the Forensic Audit finished before we can justify the need for a levy, and if so, the appropriate amount!
