US: Poway Unified Officials Might Have Stumbled Upon New Financial Crimes


October 24 2017

For years, top Poway Unified School District administrators received thousands of dollars in extra compensation apart from their regular paychecks, newly discovered district documents show.

District officials said they cannot find evidence the board ever approved of the payments, which could be legally problematic.

District officials recently found documents showing $149,495 paid by the district to a special retirement fund for 15 employees while gathering records to respond to a California Public Records Act request from Voice of San Diego.
