State Auditor Closes Case Against Biloxi Schools

Statement from Biloxi Public School Board:
The Biloxi Public School District is pleased to announce that the Office of the State Auditor has closed the investigation involving former Superintendent Arthur McMillan, current Chief Financial Officer Shane Switzer, and former Director of Child Nutrition Dixie Eleuterius. Allegations were brought forward in October 2018 and an investigation was opened by the State Auditor’s Office that same month. Additionally, the District’s Board of Trustees authorized an internal investigation that was completed on May 14, 2019. The independent third-party that conducted the internal investigation reported no findings of misuse of public funds. On September 8, 2020, the Office of the State Auditor notified the District that the case was closed, stating: “After a thorough investigation, it was determined there was not enough documentation to substantiate the allegations.” While the District and those involved expected this outcome, we are gratified to move past this distraction and continue our mission of providing the highest quality of education to our students.
