Police, auditor investigate North Augusta PTO fund

 

NORTH AUGUSTA — Although no charges have been filed, authorities are investigating allegations that the treasurer of the North Augusta Middle School PTO converted thousands in PTO funds to her own use.

According to a North Augusta Department of Public Safety report filed Jan. 4 and released Monday, Principal Barry Head told police that he had received information that PTO treasurer Connie Boisclair had embezzled PTO checks and cash dating back to May 2011. Head said an internal auditor for the Aiken County School District had uncovered multiple improprieties totaling more than $20,000.

Police say they have obtained statements and copies of the checks drawn by Boisclair, but no charges have been filed.
