A Lakota East High School teacher is the focus of an investigation by police in connection with missing funds from the Butler County school’s prom fund.
The teacher, who resigned earlier this week, was not named by Lakota school officials in their released statement Friday.
According to Lakota officials, they “could not initially account for $800 in ticket sale proceeds from the Lakota East High School prom fund. The district has recovered $160 and officials “will continue to pursue the remainder.”
“We take all matters involving potential illegal activity very seriously,” said Lakota Superintendent Karen Mantia. “We acted with urgency to handle this situation appropriately. We are cooperating fully with the (Butler County) Sheriff’s office.”
