Montgomery Co. Finance Staffers Appear To Have Been Compensated For Participating In Audit

You already know about the myriad scandals in Montgomery County Schools.

So here’s the latest…

Finance staffers in the central office were given a $1-per-hour pay raise. During a working session with the school board, superintendent Joshua Powell said it was because they’d had such a stressful job during the audit.

The board had to change job descriptions for them in an effort to make the pay raises legal, apparently. Which sounds extremely familiar.


Doesn’t seem legal to us, as the raises weren’t scheduled at the beginning of the school year and don’t include everyone (not even everyone working in finance).

Multiple board members provided this information to us. Here’s betting that’s causing a lot of paranoia in Mt. Sterling today.
