McALESTER, Okla. (AP) — The McAlester school board has fired the district's superintendent amid allegations she spent school money on personal items.
The McAlester News-Capital reports the panel said late Saturday that it was dismissing Marsha Gore because of violations of policy regarding credit card usage and personal spending. The vote was 4-0.
Attorney Bill Ervin, who represented the district, says "the evidence justified the board's decision." The newspaper says Gore and her attorney, Joe E. White, declined comment after the decision.
