State-appointed CFO to give report on investigation into Birmingham BOE's finances

On Tuesday, the Birmingham Board of Education will hear from Dr. Ed Richardson,{}the system's state-appointed Chief Financial Officer.

He will present the state's findings on governance issues with the local board.

You'll remember,{}the state team was sent in after the board attempted to fire Superintendent Dr. Craig Witherspoon.{} These findings will be used to draft a response to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools,{}which is also looking into the accreditation of the Birmingham school system.

A response is due by October 1st.{}
