The South Georgia district attorney says an investigation into Baker County schools could take months.
The probe comes after a local citizens’ group brought to light alleged financial mismanagement.
Joe Mulholland says given the scope of the case, he could call in the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
“It could be a real possibility, in the sense that if we start looking at things and need a forensic audit we obviously don’t have the resources in our office to do something like that, so yeah I’d think they would become involved if it got to that level.”
The Baker County schools superintendent admits the system’s been in “financial disarray” since before he took the job in January.
Baker County schools did not meet this year’s federal benchmarks under Annual Yearly Progress standards.
