Future of the David School could be in jeopardy

DAVID, Ky. (AP) - A Floyd County high school that serves as an alternative for at-risk students could be facing closure.

The David School, founded by a transplanted New Yorker who was shocked by the poverty of Appalachia, has nearly always wanted for money.

But the Lexington Herald-Leader reports (http://bit.ly/JFVcDT ) that the Kentucky Attorney General's Office is now seeking information on the school's finances and on payments to its founder and longtime director, Daniel Greene.

According to court documents, the attorney general's office suspects that Greene may have used his position to misappropriate school assets for his own use.

Greene told the paper he has never wrongly taken money from the school.

Even supporters are concerned about the school's future. They say the school has no functioning board. Paychecks were late recently, and the school dropped its lunch program.
