Fraud Prevention  
Print Policy

The Carroll County School System shall not tolerate fraud of any kind, and has established a system for the reporting of suspected fraudulent or suspicious activities.


Fraud is defined as a false representation of a matter of fact, whether by words or by conduct, or by concealment of that which should have been disclosed, that is used for the purpose of misappropriating property and/or monetary funds from federal, state, or local grants and funds.

Employees or any other person suspecting fraud, whether it pertains to federal, state, or local programs, should report his or her concerns to the Superintendent or designee.  If fraud in suspected of or by the Superintendent, the matter should be reported to the Board chair.


All reports of suspected fraud shall be handled confidentially.  Informants may remain anonymous but shall be encouraged to cooperate with investigators and to provide as much detail and evidence of the alleged fraudulent act as possible.


Reports of suspicious activity and/or suspected fraud will be investigated as appropriate.  


Employees determined to have engaged in fraudulent activities shall be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination and/or being reported to other appropriate agencies.
