School group hires interim director

Posted:

 

DES MOINES (KWWL) - A troubled school board association, which ousted its director for allegedly raising her own salary by $157,000, has hired an interim director.

The Iowa Association of School Boards has hired Veronica Stalker, a retired educator who once served as superintendent in Waukee. She will serve as interim director of the taxpayer-supported group through Dec. 31.

The board's finances are currently being investigated by the FBI, the U.S. Department of Education's inspector general and state officials.

Maxine Kilcrease was fired in March amid charges she inflated her annual salary to nearly $400,000 and presided over lavish spending that included trips to Bora Bora and elsewhere.
