Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s office announced Thursday the civil settlement with Kristofer and Rita Sippel, owners of San Tan Montessori School Inc., which operates two charter-school campuses.
Brnovich’s office launched a criminal investigation in 2016, probing allegations that the Sippels’ nonprofit company, which runs San Tan Charter School in Gilbert, was misusing public funds. The investigation, which originated with a whistleblower familiar with the school’s finances, found more than $300,000 in questionable spending from state funds dedicated to the education of children
