Paris, Ill. (ECWd) –
During a Special Meeting of the Paris Union School District 95, the board of education voted unanimously (with one abstention) to hire retired Paris (Crestwood) School District Superintendent, Lorraine Bailey, as the temporary superintendent for D-95 until the grant funding issues have been settled or corrected.
In other issues, the district obtained an extension until July 15, 2023, to submit their plan to deal with the audit results.
The Superintendent Larson and Sally Keller are both on paid administrative leave.
The Board President read a prepared statement and told the attending public that there are no actual monies missing.
I voiced my displeasure, during public comment, of the district’s decision to not release the entire federal subpoena and urged them to reconsider.
Watch the meeting video below – meeting starts at the 6:55 mark, and comes out of closed session at the 42:40 mark.
