FLEMINGSBURG — The Kentucky State Police Morehead Post is conducting an investigation regarding the finances of the Fleming County School district.
Detective Brian Cooper with KSP said an investigation is underway regarding Fleming County Schools finances and declined to comment further on the matter.
According to Fleming County Schools Superintendent Brian Creasman, former Director of Districtwide Operations and Finance Greg Conway no longer works with Fleming County schools. Creasman made no further comments regarding Conway’s resignation.
Efforts to contact Conway via phone or social media for further comments have been unsuccessful.
The Fleming County Board of Education held its regular meeting Tuesday evening which approved a re-organization of its district office. According to a release from Creasman, the re-organization was the result of a resignation that occurred last week. The superintendent’s statement mentioned, alongside the district office re-organization, an approval for the creation of a new position.
“The board also approved the creation of a director of Business and Finance, as a separate position, to implement more safeguards as it pertains to district finances,” according to the statement. “We hope to have this position filled by the start of school.”
Changes that were approved by the board, as indicated by the statement, align with the five-year strategic framework that the board implemented two years ago.
The re-organization includes:
— Leisa Eldridge, current chief academic officer, will now become the assistant superintendent.
— Michelle Hunt, recently named director of Pupil Personnel and Transformation, will become chief academic officer.
— Carol Thompson, current principal of Hillsboro Elementary School and part-time DPPT will now hold her department position full-time, along with director of Human Resources.
— Gregg Emmons, current director of Personnel, Transportation and Title 1, will become director of Federal Programs and Transportation along with “many other responsibilities.”
— Melissa James will continue as director of Special Education and Preschool.
— Denise Brown will remain as the chief information officer.
Each administrator’s new role will take effect on July 1.
