Broward Corruption: What Slush Fund? School Board Pays Big Bucks To South Plantation Principal

Say it ain't so MO

First, Broward County School Board auditors uncover an “improper” $350,000 slush fund at South Plantation High School. Auditors say the school’s principal oversaw this fund; Investigators told the Board current South Area superintendent Joel Herbst operated the fund between 2000-2008.

Then, interim School Board superintendent Donnie Carter says no one will face any disciplinary action over the slush fund. Sources tell RED BROWARD this type of “fund” exists elsewhere in the district.

Now, you get to see the salaries of those at South Plantation High School.

SOUTH PLANTATION HIGH PRINCIPAL-HIGH $117,499
SOUTH PLANTATION HIGH ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL-HIGH $94,995
SOUTH PLANTATION HIGH ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL-$84,511
SOUTH PLANTATION HIGH ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL-HIGH $79,213
SOUTH PLANTATION HIGH ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL-HIGH $79,213

Why does South Plantation need four assistant principals? Especially when the average teacher at South Plantation makes around $40,000?

What about South Area Superintendent and Juice Plus guru Dr. Joel Herbst? He’s doing just fine:

SOUTH AREA OFFICE AREA SUPERINTENDENT (NON-UNION) $169,344

Forget the Paladin, is this the new South Plantation mascot?

South Plantation High School is part of Maureen Dinnen’s district. Has anyone asked her about this situation? Was she aware of this mess? Or will she do as she always does and blame it on “media hype”?

Don’t the parents, children and teachers at South Plantation High School deserve better?
