LA VERNIA -- Police here and La Vernia Independent School District Superintendent Tom Harvey have confirmed that an investigation is ongoing into the La Vernia Junior High School’s student activities fund.

Harvey said today that letters were sent home with students to inform their parents of the probe. He said the district is cooperating with police and it takes the allegations seriously.

Sgt. Bruce Ritchey of the La Vernia Police Department is heading up the investigation. He said the months-old probe began when a parent made an allegation that a district staff member was misappropriating money from the fund.

How much money are we talking about? Sounds like we need new school board members.

@Jane Addams...I firmly agree with you that it would've been prudent for the administration to have notified and or met with the staff to inform them of what was occurring. It would've been nice before the memo but if nothing ... More ›

Jane - this is what I tell myself (in my quest to get transparency in our local government). That is - our local government, school, hospital and other entities have ruled unchecked for decades. The point is - it took along ... More ›

Totally get what you are saying, many people went to the Board Meeting, but all business is done in executive meeting, so for many we have heard, it just seems to be a waste of time. They don't seem to want community input. ... More ›

@One Voice: did not mean to sound condescending, I apologize. When you said 'pay check'. I took that to mean check stub. My bad.

I did not say check stubs. If you are going to get really bossy - get your FACTS straight. People do not respond to a condescending attitude.

@One Voice: under no circumstances will you get check stubs because there is information on the check that is confidential for the employee, but rather ask for a detail by month of what was paid to the employee through payroll, ... More ›
