State investigating Scott County school district

GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) - State officials are investigating a central Kentucky school district.

Scott County schools' board chair Phyllis Young told the Georgetown News-Graphic ( that an investigator from the Office for Education Accountability visited the district last week and questioned administrators, board members and site-based decision making councils. She said school officials were questioned about a 15 percent pay raise for the superintendent, a school board trip last year to Northern Kentucky University and hiring at middle schools. She declined to be more specific.

Investigator Karen Timmel-Hatzell confirmed that she visited the district, but declined to answer questions about the investigation.
