With the Alamance-Burlngton School System's top two financial officials indefinitely sidelined, one of them permanently and the other reportedly having hidden a scandal, the school system's superintendent has recommended elevating a third official to temporarily oversee the system's finances.

Accounts Manager Melinda Anderson has been appointed as acting finance officer with assistance from retired Wake County Chief Financial Officer Mark Winters, the school system announced. Anderson has been the accounts manager with ABSS since February 2023.
