The U.S. Department of Labor has asked the school district for records of their investigation into allegations by a former Boys & Girls Club employee that teachers were eating their Germantown High students' federally funded lunches.
A district spokesman could not confirm yesterday whether any documents had been turned over but reiterated that an investigation found whistle-blower Samenia Mayer's complaints unfounded.
Leni Fortson, spokeswoman for the Labor Department, said that officials had requested information from the district but that she could not provide further details.
"Until we get the information, we can't speculate about what will happen," she said.
Mayer, who was hired by the Boys & Girls Club to help coordinate the Step It Up Mentoring Program at the high school, alleged that she'd seen several teachers taking lunches - usually hoagies, chips, fruit, cookies and juice or water - before the meals were distributed to students participating in the freshman transition Summer Bridge program.
