There’s an ongoing investigation within the Atlanta Public Schools regarding missing iPads.
According to district spokesperson Steve Alford, sometime last year the iPads he ordered went missing.
“I don’t know the exact date, but I can tell when we began to distribute the iPads and we went through each of the list iPads that we ordered, we realized we were missing ten.”
The iPads were among a batch of 85 ordered for APS communication specialists.
Alfords calls the alleged iPad thefts unfortunate and disturbing.
This week the Atlanta Public Schools superintendent search committee will meet for the first time.
The newly named committee chairwoman says the group is committed to identifying the right finalists.
Ann Wilson Cramer is considered one of Atlanta’s movers and shakers.
She first arrived in Atlanta more than four decades ago and says her advocacy for education is stronger than ever.
“I am filled with optimism,” says the former IBM executive after being asked to serve as chair by APS board chairman Reuben McDaniel.
The attorney for Dr. Beverly Hall says the former Atlanta Public Schools superintendent is innocent and the charges against her will be difficult to prove.
WABE’s Rose Scott sat down with Richard Deane of the Jones Day Law firm to talk about the case against Dr. Hall.
This conversation begins with Deane addressing allegations that a culture of fear and intimidation existed under Dr. Hall.
Atlanta Public Schools superintendent Erroll Davis says the district is continuing to build stronger and more ethical leadership at every level.
This comes after 35 former APS employees have been indicted on charges ranging from racketeering to theft by taking.
Superintendent Erroll Davis says there was no satisfaction in watching former educators walk in and out of the Fulton County jail.
“I believe all failures are leadership failures and I see this as a massive failure of leadership at every level.”
