Federal Hotline Available to Report Misuse of Funds

V.I. Education Commissioner Dr. LaVerne Terry is encouraging the general public to report any misuse of the department’s federal funding to the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of the Interior Offices of the Inspector General.
In an effort to continue meeting the mandates of the Compliance Agreement between the U.S. Department of Education and the V.I. government, the Department of Education is required to publicize the toll-free telephone numbers that residents can use to call in any misuse or fraud, according to a press release issued on Friday by the V.I. Department of Education.
“These numbers are available to all schools, teachers, parents, and participants of the adult and vocational programs, VIDE employees, all government agencies and other interested stakeholders,” Terry said.
The numbers are:
U.S. Department of Education-Office of the Inspector General: 1-800-MISUSED
U.S. Department of the Interior-Office of the Inspector General: 1-800-424-5081
For more information regarding the misuse of federal education funds, contact Clarrisa Warrington, director of Federal Grants, at 774-0100, extension 8155. Residents may also visit the U.S. Department of Education Office of the Inspector General’s Web site at:
