D.A. Kendall passes on pursuing Adler investigation
To quell concerns surrounding Mono County Superintendent of Schools Stacy Adler issuing herself and 11 other employees at the Office $93,530 in stipends since 2012, Mono County District Attorney Tim Kendall answered questions from The Sheet.
Adler won re-election in June against then-Deputy Superintendent and Special Education Director Jennifer Huh. Adler did not renew Huh’s contract, which expired June 30. .
The stipends ranged from $200 to $5,000 to Adler and other MCOE employees for work performed in managing a charter school in San Diego. The Office has not produced or does not have time cards or a list of work performed for justifying the stipends as requested by The Sheet.
The Sheet made this request via a Public Records Request.
In February, Kendall announced the findings of an investigation into possible misappropriation of funds by Adler and determined she had not acted maliciously and no charges were filed.
