Administration keeps Clemente on a leash

An audit of the school’s internal accounts found over $15,000 in “prohibited expenditures,” including more than $14,000 paid to a retired staffer for keeping the pop machines stocked. An audit of state and federal programs at the school found a wide range of minor transgressions. A typical example involved two teacher assistants who were supposed to be working in the math lab but who worked in the attendance office instead.
