WARRENSVILLE HEIGHTS, Ohio - A just released state audit reveals thousands of dollars are missing from a local school district that would have gone to yearbook, prom and graduation fees.
According to auditors, more than $12,000 paid by students at Warrensville High School in 2010 is unaccounted for.
The cash was collected under the supervision of a high school secretary and her principal--both are no longer employed by the district.
Warrensville Schools Superintendent Marva Kay Jones says systems have been put in place to safeguard cash.
"We're confident that we are taking care of this district, the finances and the educational operations of the district and the good order that we need to do that," said Jones.
Auditors also found $880 missing from a Warrensville elementary school where the same secretary once worked.
Information contained in the audit has been turned over to the Warrensville Police Department for possible criminal charges.
