GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) - State officials are investigating a central Kentucky school district.
Scott County schools' board chair Phyllis Young told the Georgetown News-Graphic (http://bit.ly/QJsp9S) 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.
