At Thursday night's Pleasant valley School Board meeting, a Monroe County District Attorney investigator read a statement saying past and present members of the administration are under investigation.
"The conduct alleged may involve criminal violations of bribery in official and political matters, threats and improper influence in official and political matters, retaliation for past official action, official oppression and violations of the Pennsylvania wiretap act."
District officials say the investigation is nothing new and that they are cooperating fully.
Superintendent David Piperato issued his own statement chiding the DA's announcement.
"We were disappointed that the District Attorney's office decided to make the statement during a school board meeting, especially on a night in which we recognized school board members with presentations by many students from kindergarten through high school."
Piperato says the district is also conducting an investigation.
So far, only one person has been charged in the grand jury investigation that dates back to 2010.
Earlier Friday, Joshua Krebs, the director of support staff, waived his preliminary hearing on charges that he illegally recorded fellow employees.
The charges stem from an April 2016 incident where Krebs allegedly used a camera to record video and audio in the employee break room.
Court documents say Krebs wanted to record a janitorial worker who Krebs believed was derelict in his duties.
The detective's statement says anyone with information related to these matters should call the DA's office.
The grand jury did recommend charges against another employee who knew about the camera, but so far no one else has been charged.
Evidence suggests the male was playing with the weapon and he was inexperienced, according to Wagner. He may have even been taking a selfie or a video.Read More »
