Scranton, PA – Statement from Superintendent Alexis T. Kirijan about Grand Jury Findings
As the Scranton School District Superintendent, I take the Grand Jury Findings released Tuesday seriously and am sickened by these allegations. Any immoral, unethical or illegal activity by Scranton School District employees will not be tolerated. Our students, parents, employees and taxpayers deserve better.
While the overwhelming majority of our employees are upstanding professionals, it doesn’t make me feel any better about the allegations. I believe that one unethical employee is one too many and that’s why at the conclusion of the Attorney General's investigation I intend to recommend to the Board swift and severe action, including immediate termination for any employee found guilty of the reported behavior.
