DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) - Members of the Delphi Community School Corporation Board of Trustees talked financial problems at Monday night's work session meeting. The school district is working to figure out how to finance the rest of the school year.

This comes after the district's financial advisor, Ed Eiler, told News 18 July and August funds were unaccounted for. This is creating problems for the school, as it looks to continue paying for a multi-million dollar project to upgrade its elementary and middle-high school.

It is also has a roofing project and a new turf football-soccer field to eventually pay for. Interim Superintendent Dan Ronk said they have a lot of work do on the budget.

"We obviously had to borrow money to make our payroll and so we just aren't quite sure where we are going to end up with at the end of the year," he said. "It's very frustrating not to have a better idea."

Ronk has been the acting superintendent since September 16th. Former Superintendent Greg Briles was placed on administrative leave in August. The July and August funds went missing under Briles' leadership. 

The school board started talks on Monday night about hiring a new permanent superintendent, possibly this spring.
