Board questioning Eaton RESA superintendent about budget

EATON COUNTY, MI (WLNS) – In April the Eaton RESA School Board launched an investigation into Superintendent Christine Beardsley.

After an audit showed the boards budget went from a surplus of $80,000 to a deficit of $460,000.

On Monday the board reviewed the results of that investigation. 6 News Christa Lamendola was there moments after the board discussed the results.

Board members did not discuss what the results of that investigation were, but they did say one thing.

Superintendent Beardsley will stay on paid administrative leave until they have the chance to ask her some serious questions.

The superintendent has been in question not only for the disappearance of the agency’s money, but for her management style.

Former employees of Eaton RESA say more than one hundred teachers and employees have left the district, many citing the superintendent as one of the reasons.

Now with the results of a formal audit and investigation board members say they continue to have serious concerns about the superintendent and are looking to resolve things soon.

“They did see the investigation results, deliberated and decided they’d like to ask some questions,” said Don Sovey, interim, superintendent, Eaton RESA.

The board says they plan to ask Beardsley those questions at a special meeting, but haven’t announced when that meeting will be.
