Independent Covers FBISD Key Resignation--

FBISD internal auditor quits
Fort Bend ISD’s Internal Auditor Tina Worrel, whose critical internal audit reports highlighted the shortcomings in various departments of the school district in the past, causing a political upheaval, has abruptly quit, for unspecified reasons.

FBISD’s Chief Communications Officer Mary Ann Simpson confirmed on Monday that Worrel resigned on March 24 voluntarily.

Worrel did not elaborate as to why she resigned.

The internal auditor reports to the school board and no successor has been appointed yet.

Asked if board’s audit subcommittee met to terminate or discuss the future of Worrel, Simpson said neither happened.

She denied the suggestion that Worrel and Superintendent Timothy Jenney had disagreement over the time frame for compliance with the internal audit reports. . .(get the full piece at: http://fbindependent.com/default.asp?sourceid=&smenu=1&twindow=&mad=&sdetail=388&wpage=1&skeyword=&sidate=&ccat=&ccatm=&restate=&restatus=&reoption=&retype=&repmin=&repmax=&rebed=&rebath=&subname=&pform=&sc=2531&hn=fbindependent&he=.com)

FBW comment:

An opportunity to speak with Ms. Worrel should prove interesting in regards to this story.
