NORTH BALTIMORE, Ohio (WTVG) - The treasurer for the North Baltimore School District is on leave due to an investigation in financial irregularities, the district announced Thursday.

Law enforcement officials were seen at the district office Wednesday.

According to Superintendent Ryan Delaney, Treasurer Steven Stewart was placed on leave on March 22 pending an investigation of misuse of funds.

“I have been advised by counsel not to talk about anything pending the investigation,” said Stewart.

Superintendent Delaney will be taking over Stewart’s role responsibilities for the time being.

“I will be working closely with local authorities to determine the extent of any irregularities and take appropriate action to rectify them,” Superintendent Delaney said. “I will keep you informed of any developments as the investigation progresses. In the meantime, I ask for your cooperation and understanding. I am committed to ensuring a safe and secure environment for all.”

One local parent who wanted to remain anonymous tells 13abc that she is frustrated with the lack of transparency from the district.

Delaney says the situation will not impact students or school operations.
