Hmong College Prep Academy Superintendent Resigns

CATEGORIES

The superintendent of St. Paul’s Hmong College Prep Academy in Minnesota announced her resignation amidst a state investigation into the school’s financial mismanagement, KARE 11 reports.

Dr. Christianna Hang notified the academy’s board of her resignation Sunday morning, CBS Minnesota reports.

The Hmong College Prep Academy is a K-12 charter school located in St. Paul, Minnesota, meaning it receives public funding. A state investigation was prompted by the discovery that the school had invested $5 million of that public funding into a risky hedge fund, according to CBS Minnesota.

A report from the Office of the State auditor, published on Oct. 18, found that the $5 million investment did not comply with Minnesota law regarding the investment of public funds. The report also discovered that the school failed to recover $4.3 million of public funds between September 2019 and April 2021, KARE 11 reports.

The HCPA board sent a letter to the school’s family on October 21 confirming Dr. Hang’s resignation.

“A transition team for Hmong College Prep Academy, which includes the board, school administration and staff will take a number of steps to move our school leadership forward,” the board wrote, according to KARE 11. “HCPA’s school operations and high-quality instruction will continue as normal.”
