” The former principal of an alternative high school in southeast Baltimore has been indicted on charges of stealing more than $13,000 from a school account — proceeds from the sales of school uniforms, class dues, graduation fees — and withdrawing the cash from an ATM at Maryland Live Casino, state prosecutors said.

-

The Office of the State Prosecutor announced Monday the indictments charging Leslie Lewis, 44, of Owings Mills, and her former colleague Albert Fluker, 45, of Randallstown. Lewis worked as principal of Baltimore Community High School near the Dundalk line.

-

 

Furthermore, she is charged with falsifying purchase orders to steal more than $40,000 worth of technology from Baltimore city schools. Both Lewis and Fluker are charged with stealing four flat-screen TVs from Baltimore Community High School.”

 

This involves a principal and another teacher. Sounds like they had quite a racket going on. Is this the same school where the guy in Dundalk was almost beaten to death by that group of students?

Could not agree more.

 

If you have people with access to money you should assume there is some level of shenanigans going on.

A stronger message would have been sent had they busted them on April Fool's Day.

This is what you get when you lower the bar with your hiring practices.

Does the city school system still take an official stance that auditing their books is a waste of taxpayers money?

Guess that explains why the city schools need more money.

Funny how all this negative stuff almost ALWAYS comes from association with the city. And I just don't mean just the schools.

 

Maybe there is a pattern here.

 

Has anybody been reading the Sun Investigates series about the schools. It is almost funny if it weren't so sad.

The sad thing is low level employees will get laid off due to the budget shortfall. Meanwhile the same incompetent administrators will keep their cushy positions on North Ave.
