BEAUMONT -- Friday afternoon, Beaumont ISD Police Officers were on Amelia Elementary School's campus.
Officers are now investigating allegations of mismanagement of PTA funds. Parents of students attending Amelia say they've never heard of anything like this happening before.
All in agreement, if there is a misuse of funds, that person should definitely be held accountable.
“It's a shock to me,” says Demetra Jones, a mother of two Amelia students. “It's something that just came to my knowledge, so I had no idea that was going on, but it is something to think about. I mean, I don't understand why they would be possibly be misusing their funds for the children when it's supposed to go to the children, so that's an issue with me and I have a problem with that.”
“I hope it turns up nothing,” says another Amelia mother Olacha Morris. “Really, because that would not be good for BISD. BISD already had a lot going on previously, so we don't need anything else.”
Concerns and questions, which will hopefully be answered when the investigation is complete.
