Ex-superintendent of Gary schools in Indiana accused of double-billing district.
Cheryl Pruitt, 55, attended a three-day education conference between May 3 and 6 where she charged $1,500 in expenses to a district’s BMO Harris credit card, court records show. She submitted a second reimbursement request to the district to cover the same expenses without the spa trip, totaling over $1,200.“This resulted in Cheryl Pruitt receiving a $1,256.75 ‘reimbursement’ for funds she never spent,” court records said.Court documents say Pruitt told an investigator the double-billing wasn’t done intentionally. When the agent asked why the money was deposited into her personal account when it was charged on a business credit card, “Ms. Pruitt stated that she did not recognize this.” Pruitt announced she would resign in December. She left the district in February.
