Falls school district is subject of financial investigation

By Chris Jamele

Buffalo, NY – A number of cases involving the questionable use of finances have dogged the Niagara Falls School District and its school board over the years. Now the District and the board are facing questions regarding Senior District Repairer Jeffrey Pasquantino.

The Buffalo News reports that private investigators have gathered evidence that Pasquantino worked outside of his district duties while on school time, often using district materials. The investigation also found that much of this work was done for district employees.

Many employees are refusing comment. Pasquantino has resigned, though he is still eligible for his pension, and the investigation continues.
