SWEENY — After a Wells Fargo bank account was opened with $400,000 from the Sweeny ISD Education Foundation, without the knowledge of the school district’s chief financial officer, the school board is looking into the matter.

“The Sweeny ISD Board of Trustees was made aware of this matter and engaged the board’s attorney, as well as the board’s auditor to engage in an investigation of the matter,” Superinten-dent Tory Hill said. “At the last board meeting the (Board of Trustees) also took action to approve a special audit of the Sweeny ISD Education Foundation.”
