CHICKASHA, Okla. – We’re learning more about an investigation that has caused the suspension of four employees with the Chickasha Public School District.
Officials told KFOR that four employees were suspended on Wednesday for 10 days, adding that an independent investigation is underway.
“Chickasha Public Schools had cause to believe and had some complaints from patrons that there may have been improprieties,” Richard O’Carroll, the attorney representing the school district, said.
O’Carroll says the independent investigation would be led by Chickasha Public Schools interim superintendent Cindy Schmidt, along with other members of the administration.
On Friday, O'Carroll released more details to KFOR about that investigation.
"Be advised that at this stage the administration of Chickasha Public Schools is investigating Mr. Glass's clients for failure to report child abuse of special needs students and embezzlement of taxpayer dollars," a statement read.
So far, no other details about the investigation have been released.
