Andrea Barr, the recently fired chief auditor of Baltimore County Public Schools, filed a letter of appeal to the Maryland State Board of Education on June 16, asserting that she was terminated unlawfully. During a school board meeting May 17, the board held a vote on whether to renew Barr’s contract. Barr had been employed by the Office of Internal Audit since 1986 and became chief auditor in 2013 without “a single blemish on [her] record,” she wrote in her appeal. However, her contract renewal failed, not because of votes in favor of termination but board members choosing not to vote at all.
