The administrators and finance personnel told officers that a faculty member had taken money from Scholastic Book Fairs held in the fall and spring, where the proceeds are to go to the school system for curriculum supplies. 

50-year-old Susan Slagle-Boyd of Storm Lake, a librarian and art teacher at the school, allegedly facilitated the book fairs and misappropriated cash proceeds from the fundraisers for her own personal use.
