Coming Saturday: New Castle reveals names in tuition probe

NEW CASTLE — The New Castle school district has identified three employees who failed to pay required tuition for their children.

The employees, all teachers, were the subject of a finding earlier this year by the Pennsylvania Auditor General’s office. That finding directed the school district to recoup more than $100,000 the employees owed the district.

In July, the New Castle News sought a list of the names of these employees from the school district but was turned down. The News pursued the matter under Pennsylvania’s Right to Know Law and eventually won access to the list in a decision by the Pennsylvania Office of Open Records.

In tomorrow’s paper, we will have the list of names and other details in the case.
