It's now been several months since the Herald-Leader's open records request to evaluate the spending habits of Superintendent Stu Silberman and the Board of Education. In the wake of the Airport Board scandal, in May and June H-L made open records requests and poured over district expense records.
In the meantime, revelations from H-L of excesses have come forth from the League of Cities, the Lexington Public Library and the Kentucky Association of Counties. Good coverage of bad stuff. Strippers, escorts and lawyers!
But no story has emanated on the Fayette County Schools.
A source told KSN&C that the superintendent put expenses related to a board trip to San Francisco on the district credit card but that board members had reimbursed the district for their shares of the expense - which is pretty standard and totally appropriate. Not much else to talk about - so, no news.
Unless the Herald-Leader tells us otherwise, it would seem that the school system got a good look, and looked good.
