$10,000 missing from Clinton Schools-Fraud Suspected


CLINTON - City school officials have requested a state audit after they recently found at least $10,000 missing over a two-year period.

Fraud is suspected, and more money may be involved, officials said Monday.

The Anderson County District Attorney General's office has been alerted, schools director Vicki Violette said.

"There will be some things come out (during the audit) that we're not aware of yet," predicted Dale Isabell, recently named the system's part-time chief finance officer.

"I expect that to happen," he said. "I think it will be more than $10,000."
