Cuthbert-- More problems in the Randolph County School System. The Georgia Professional Standards Commission has voted to take action on an ethics complaint filed against the Superintendent and his wife.

This is video of a school board meeting. Superintendent Bobby Jenkins is seated at the head of the table. An ethics complaint was filed against Jenkins and his wife, Naomi, related to public funds and property belonging to the school. Naomi works for the school system as well.

According to Vicky Brantley, head of the Educator Ethics Division, a letter was mailed out this week to the Jenkins' about the decision. The couple has thirty days to accept or appeal the decision. The outcome will not be disclosed until the a final vote is taken to resolve the case.

 Randolph County Schools are off this week for Fall Break, and Bobby Jenkins could not be reached for comment.
