There's a new controversy at the embattled charter school co-founded by football NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders.
Prime Prep Academy's superintendent, Ron Price, says there are hundreds of school computers missing. Price started the week at the district attorney's office in Tarrant County on Tuesday, discussing what could possibly uncover a crime involving the missing computers.
Price says that after an internal audit, hundreds of laptop computers are unaccounted for. They were purchased with state and federal money for Prime Prep students during the previous administration.
"Our children in our school district deserve and need those computers and other equipment, and if any adults are responsible for mistreating children, they will be accountable," said Price.
Price took over as superintendent of the school in December -- it was cofounded by Sanders and his then business partner, D. L. Wallace.
The computer investigation is the latest in a string of controversies, including alleged misuse of funds, poor academic performance and the firings of Sanders.
"It's up to the D.A., but we feel we've provided the proper information and documentation that will hold people accountable for what they've done to children," said Price.
Price confirmed there is more than one person involved, and said that he turned over more than 100 pages of documents to the district attorney's office during Monday's meeting.
