Albany- Two weeks ago, we told you about a federal investigation into accounting problems at Albany's Head Start program.

Monday, we learned the local board that oversees the program has relinquished control.

Executive Director Eliza Spurling has turned in her keys, apparently resigning. And the job of every employee could be in danger.

Head Start is more than $500,000 in debt.

The federal government hired a private company that will take over the organization this Friday. Head Start will be reopened when school begins for the more than 750 children it serves.

But all Albany Head Start employees will have to re-apply for their jobs through the private company.

A federal spokesperson did say the company tends to rehire most of the current employees. Board Chairman Christopher Pike would not comment Monday.
