Audit recommends on-site monitoring of NC community college
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - An audit recommends that North Carolina's top community college officials consider on-site monitoring of a school whose leaders are described as being "uncooperative, belligerent and argumentative" during an investigation.
The investigation by the state auditor's office used those words to describe the attitude of some board members at Roanoke-Chowan Community College in Ahoskie during a second exit conference in November.
The audit released Monday says the State Board of Community Colleges and the North Carolina Community College System office should consider on-site monitoring to determine if the board's involvement in daily operations is excessive. The school has had four presidents in five years.
The school responded that the audit was unable to link the turnover to board involvement and couldn't prove or disprove the board's involvement in daily operations.
