They probably got paid for mileage at $.50 per mile for round trip. You can go to the website and look under frequently used forms and see the mileage rate. The breakfast and lunch was reimbursed probably since they were there. The supper was covered by vendors who provided meals for all county members who were there as well as any spouses and children. I also overheard some Principals talking about there was plenty of alcohol available for those who chose to drink. At one supper it was only wine and beer but at another, one could order a mixed drink. If you look at the schedule that someone posted all the professional development was half day. It began on Monday but the County paid for Sunday night! Is there any records of who attended what meetings? Were there any ways of accountability of what our money was spent on. I saw where only half of the people who went a couple of years ago across the state were there this year but it looks like Columbus County sent as many or more. Dan Strickland said that a couple of systems that were local chose to send the superintendent but did not mention that no other administrators went. Whiteville City chose not to send anyone. Cut 25 positions and give the administrators a vacation with golf, gambling, and shopping. Wish I had a job like that!
