As Clay County Schools work on improving student attendance, there is another problem that costs the district almost $200,000 a year – teacher absenteeism.
The case of two Clay County School Board employees, Billy Ray Henson and Rex Sizemore, is on the Clay Circuit Court Docket after no movement for a year and a half.
All but one of Clay County’s seven special districts turned in their budgets to the fiscal court, though state Auditor Adam Edelen’s office said they did not.
The home of Wayne Estep and his family was destroyed by fire last Tuesday (November 20) morning.
Clay County has seven special districts that are in what state Auditor Adam Edelen calls a “Ghost Government.”
Edelen released a report last week that lists more than 1,200 special districts, that are mostly unelected entities such as libraries, sanitation districts and public health departments that have the ability to fee and tax but operate with little oversight and accountability.
