LADDONIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
A Community R-6 School District employee was placed on a paid leave of absence after questions arose about the employee's use of booster club finances.
"An issue has arisen about how a member of the Booster Club has handled Club finances," Community R-6 Superintendent Cheryl Mack wrote in a statement.
The booster club was conducting its own investigation into the matter and is an entity separate from the school district, Mack said. The club has not had a meeting with the district.
Mack's statement did not make it immediately clear when the funds went missing or when the employee was put on leave.
