A nonprofit created to give Camden students extras that the district can't afford spent much of its money on a state-of-the-district banquet thrown by Schools Superintendent Annette D. Knox.
Knox created the nonprofit Camden City Board of Education Foundation in 2005 to support student programs such as music, art and athletics, and "to provide funding sources for special projects outside the budget limits," according to its mission.
...
Knox declined comment through a district spokesman, who referred all questions to Lindell Jones, the foundation president.
...
In her speech, Knox blasted critics who questioned district test scores, and she said she hoped to present an uplifting message "so everybody can pick their heads up."(Following questions from The Inquirer, the state is investigating allegations made by the former principal of Brimm Medical Arts High School, who said he was pressured to alter test scores, and New Jersey is also probing unusually high scores at two Camden schools.)
It's unclear when or whether the foundation voted to pay for this year's event.
Last year, Knox was criticized by some in the community for hosting a similar dinner that cost $22,000, paid for by taxpayers.

Two are from the district: Knox, who formed the nonprofit, and Freeman.

Knox caused waves when she attempted to raise funds as far back as June 2003, before the foundation had been legally formed.She sent letters to three dozen district vendors, listing suggested amounts to donate.
Knox later withdrew her request until after the board had established the foundation.

...
At the same meeting last night, the board approved, 6-1, a $200,000 severance package for Knox, who stepped down last month.
...
In a statement, Knox said she was "proud of her achievements with the Camden School District."
Knox agreed to resign June 21, shortly after the district received subpoenas from the state attorney general for financial records, indicating a criminal probe had begun.
Knox was also under fire for allegations that she awarded herself bonuses totaling $17,690 for 2004 and 2005 without proper board approval.Knox maintains she followed procedure.
The severance was a third of the $600,000 that Knox had sought.She will receive $185,483 for a year's salary, plus $14,000 for unused vacation time and a full year's health benefits.
The state also is investigating allegations by the principal of Dr. Charles E. Brimm Medical Arts High that he was pressured to rig a test in 2004-05.
