Federal investigators are looking to see if a grant managed by a former University of Louisville dean was mishandled.
Former Education Dean Robert Felner is at the center of the investigation. Court documents show the $694,000 grant was to fund a project between the state education department and local school districts to help schools meet federal testing goals.
Jefferson County Public Schools were among the districts.
A former Kentucky education secretary is listed as the committee's chairman, but she says she's never heard of it.
