WPost: MCPS official to repay district for purchases listed in expense reports

 June 17 at 1:40 PM  
Expense account records show that a deputy schools superintendent in Montgomery County charged $486 to her publicly funded credit card for a computer bag and leather computer carry-all.
Records released this month show that Kimberly A. Statham, deputy superintendent for teaching, learning and programs, bought the items in May 2013, during a trip to Chicago for a conference.
The expense account practices of Montgomery’s school system leaders — including purchases like Statham’s — are now under close review as the county school board is examining the system’s use of district-issued credit cards. Statham’s spending was first publicized by the Parents’ Coalition, a Montgomery watchdog group that pushes for greater government transparency.
According to district records obtained by The Washington Post, Statham paid $244 for the carry-all tote bag at a Michigan Avenue store. On the same day, at the same store, she bought a second computer bag for $242, according to the records.
