Thursday, December 1st, the Board of Education accepted the resignation, for purposes of retirement, of Mr. Nicholas Pagliuca, our high school teacher who was arrested and arraigned last week on cyber crime charges. The resignation was unconditional and the School District offered nothing in exchange for it. The District is also in receipt of a court order formally barring Mr. Pagliuca from school grounds.
We have been in regular contact with the federal investigator who is leading the criminal case against Mr. Pagliuca and all requested documentation and information has been turned over to the authorities. We have been, and will continue to be, cooperating fully with the investigation.
We have been asked to remind our community that any individuals who believe they have information concerning Nicholas Pagliuca that may be relevant to the investigation should contact HSI through its toll-free hotline at 1-866-DHS-2ICE; TTY for hearing impaired: (802) 872-6196. This hotline is staffed around-the-clock by investigators.
