Two people at the center of the controversial hiring of consultants by the Dougherty County School System, apparently in violation of school policy, aren't fully cooperating with the investigation, according to the school system's attorney.
Through a freedom of information act request, WALB News 10 got our hands on information Thursday night about an investigation requested by school board members.
Many of the questions are about a $91,000 contract paid to Darrell Sabbs and Associates to run a Saturday Academy.
In a summary of his investigation, Board Attorney Tommy Coleman says Sabbs refused to respond to his request for information. He also says the system's Director of Federal Aid, Dr. Betty Graper, provided inaccurate information and showed up for an interview with her attorney.
We're told as a school system employee not under oath, that's not something she should have done, so the interview did not take place.
Board member David Maschke says he won't let the issue drop because he thinks the system is making cuts to the classroom while wasting money in the administration.
"We want to address the issues of these funds, who is making these decisions, with my hope they will get the funds directed back down to the school level where the money can be spent most effectively," Maschke said.
The contract with Sabbs was executed without any input from the school board, apparently in violation of school policy. Dr. Graper signed the contract and authorized the checks.
