FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - When Pleasant Center Elementary School closed this spring, the PTA group had money left over in its account.
PTA President Amanda Landers took part of the cash and bought new flat screen TV’s for the outgoing board members.
Turns out, that's a violation.
Landers repaid the account with her own money, but with so many schools closing due to budget cuts, the state PTA has decided to provide training, so similar errors don't arise with other PTA groups that must fold up.
Indiana PTA President Tina Hartman says, “And help them, you know, learn how to dissolve their unit according to their bylaws and what the guidelines are, um, working with them to ensure that they do the proper paperwork with the IRS, as well as the Indiana Department of Revenue."
An anonymous source alerted the Indiana PTA to the purchase of the TV’s.
