DORA, N.M. (AP) - A criminal investigation into Dora Consolidated Schools is opening following the results of a June audit.

The Eastern New Mexico News reports (https://bit.ly/2vwLVCB ) the audit identified more than $100,000 in potentially mismanaged funds throughout a three-year period. The audit was conducted by the Office of the State Auditor.

Ninth Judicial District Attorney Criminal Investigator Dan Aguilar told citizens at a Tuesday community meeting that the office is determining whether it or the New Mexico Attorney General will lead the investigation.

Superintendent Steve Barron could not be reached for comment.

Dora resident Shauna Wade says a group of concerned citizens will attend the Aug. 14 Board of Education meeting to ask Barron and board members to resign.
