JCSD Officials Speak About Federal Investigation

Posted: Updated:
Jasper County, S.C. -

The Jasper County Board of Trustees finally broke its silence on the federal investigation going on in the district.

We first told you last week that IRS and FBI agents descended on the district asking for all financial documents, employment records, and employee communications.

And at Monday's school board meeting officials shared a statement. 

In that statement, Chairwoman Berty Riley confirmed that federal and state agents have begun conducting interviews with high-level administers and that they did appear at the district office and the home of superintendent Vashti Washington last week.

As to what the investigation is about, there still are no answers. But parents tell NEWS 3that they welcome the inquiry.

"They have not been accountable, they have no choice now but to be accountable. I'm glad there's an investigation, and I hope this benefits our children, because that's what its all about," said parent, Stacy Kirk-Evans.

District attorney Ken Childs says that subpoenas have been served but would not say for what. He added that he believes there wont be any real movement in this investigation until next month but that all employees will cooperate fully.
