Back in January of this year a statement was released in regards to missing funds that had showed up on the Woodward-Granger Community School District Audit Report. According to the report there were irregularities in the payroll that were soon attributed to extra checks collected by the former W-G business manager.

Nolte, Cornman & Johnson PC took on the investigation in the initial stages before the state took over. State Auditor Mary Mosiman says it is not unusual for the state to takeover cases of this caliber especially in its final stages.

Mosiman also stated in cases like these it is important for her team to gather as much information pertaining to the people they serve and act accordingly.

Both Mosiman and W-G Superintendent Brad Anderson says the investigation is still ongoing.

“It [the report] is a work in process and we expect to release it soon as it is in it’s final stages of review,” Mosiman said. “But I cannot give any other updates until it is publicly issued.”

Anderson says the school has not received official word as to when the state’s work will be completed, but they have moved forward with a new business manager and are diligently preparing for the 2018-19 school year.
