Unauthorized Superintendent Contract Buyout & Conflict of Interest – San Bernardino, CA

Oracle Investigations Group was retained by a San Bernardino County school district to investigate the unauthorized buyout of a Superintendent’s employment contract along with allegations that the district had entered into a financially-crippling contract for professional development services with a local collegiate institution which employed the same Superintendent under investigation. Our investigators discovered that the Superintendent did not have his buyout agreement approved in advance by the Board of Directors and had also unlawfully entered into a contract for professional development services with a local college. Because of our detailed investigation, the Superintendent and his attorney were required to renegotiate his resignation compensation and the professional development contract was declared void, therefore saving the District hundreds of thousands of dollars.
