CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Charlotte - Mecklenburg School (CMS) parents are shocked their principal has been suspended with pay. CMS says the principal of Park Road Montessori School, Anna Moraglia. has been relieved of her services indefinitely. 

CMS has not said why, but a source tells WBTV the principal faces some serious allegations. Parents and teachers tell WBTV they believe this suspension may have to do with thousands of dollars missing.

Back in July an investigation was launched into $15,000 missing from school funds.  Teachers and parents say another school employee had something to do with the stolen money and the principal should have known about it. Parents say that's possibly why Moraglia is in trouble.

CMS says her suspension is indefinite but parents say the new interim principal, Martha Carpenter, will be at the school all year.

Parents at the school were sent a Connect5 message about the changes at the school.

"This is Tara Lynn Sullivan, CMS Central Learning Community Superintendent.

Keeping you informed of matters impacting your child's school is important to me.  With that in mind, I want to provide you with the information I can share regarding a matter at the school.  

Principal Anna Moraglia will be away from school for an indefinite period of time. The focus right now should be on the effective opening of school for students and maintaining the exceptional quality of teaching and learning at Park Road.

Therefore, an interim Principal, Mrs. Martha Carpenter, has been named to support the students, staff, and families during this time. Mrs. Carpenter is a retired administrator with experience as a principal in multiple school settings as well as a central office administrator.

Additionally, I will work closely with Mrs. Carpenter, the administrative team, and all other staff to ensure school operations continue as usual.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 980-344-7130.
