Coatesville sends internal report to Chesco D.A.

Posted: August 09, 2014

Responding to a subpoena, the Coatesville Area School District has turned over its internal investigative report about district management to the Chester County District Attorney's Office.

"The district has and will continue to comply directly with any grand jury subpoena we receive," said the district's attorney, Matt Haverstick, who conducted the internal investigation into district finances and the conduct of administrators and school board members.

This comes two weeks after District Attorney Thomas Hogan publicly told Coatesville's school district to hand over the taxpayer-funded report. Hogan has said the report will help his office in its criminal investigation into potential financial mismanagement in the district.

The school board hired the Philadelphia law firm of Conrad O'Brien last fall to conduct the investigation, which began after the resignations of the district's former superintendent and an athletic director.

The administrators left after district officials discovered their racist and sexist text-message exchanges about students and staff.

The school board received the results of its internal investigation several months ago.

The district did not say whether it would release its report to the public. Hogan would not comment.
