Another high-profile administrator at Riverwood International Charter School has resigned.

Athletic Director Jeff Holloway, who was placed on administrative leave on Sept. 28 after various allegations were made against him, has resigned as athletic director and teacher at the school. Fulton County Schools executive director of communications Samantha Evans confirmed the resignation Oct. 6.

According to an investigator’s report, the school system investigated parent complaints that Holloway mingled personal funds with school funds. The report says in 2009 the National Underclassmen Combine was held at Riverwood High School and the group wrote a $1,200 check to Holloway, who then turned the money in to the school six weeks later as money orders.

“A $200 money order was allegedly deposited for a custodial fund, while the $1000 money order was given to the school as a donation,” the report states.

The report also raises the possibility that the actual total of the check was unknown, citing an e-mail from Holloway stating he didn’t know how many money orders he obtained with the funds.

The report also describes a more recent allegations surrounding a concession stand worked by the girls basketball team that took place the weekend of Sept. 17 and18.

The report says Holloway took the money from the concession stand, estimated to be $300, home in a lockbox.

“Holloway stated that he has done this in the past, to reduce time and need to go to the bank to collect funds for future fundraising or concession stands,” the investigator’s report said, adding later, “Holloway’s action to remove funds from the school, and possess them at his personal home, is a violation of (Fulton County Schools) policy and accounting procedures.”

This is the second resignation since the start of the school year.

School Principal Eddie Echols resigned earlier in September due to an audit report that found financial mismanagement. An audit released by Fulton County Schools shows multiple instances where auditors questioned financial practices at the school and found that Echols used an American Express credit card not issued by the contracting department to purchase personal items. He also used the card for school purchases, according to the audit.
