School District Announces Employee Wrongdoing

Facilities workers falsified time records, according to district superintendent.

The Bensalem School District announced today that certain employees in its facilities department have falsified time records and collected wages that they did not earn or deserve. 

According to a release, two of the employees have already resigned and Superintendent David Baugh is considering disciplinary options and dismissal for others.

"In consideration of all of the honest and hard working employees of this district, it is regrettable that a few employees have tarnished the reputation of this district," said Baugh. 

"I want to thank the person who provided the anonymous tip to me that led to my investigation and findings of wrongdoing.  I invite anyone else who has any knowledge of any alleged wrongdoing to contact me or my office.  We are happy to accept any tips on an anonymous basis.  I also want to thank all of the employees who have given me information that has assisted in the investigation."

The district is continuing its investigation into this matter and is carefully evaluating its processes, protocols and controls designed to prevent any further misconduct of this type. 

According to the release, the district will make more information available at the appropriate time, but does not want to do anything that will compromise the integrity of its investigation.

Seems like we're losing focus on the article at hand!!! I thought this was about the school district and the lack of supervision from the supervisors and facility managers!!!
Donna Pasqualone May 05, 2012 at 04:39 AM
@ M. Trimble I said MOST posts were gossip. Glad to see you do your research. YES we lost focus! Gossip got in the way!
rocket May 05, 2012 at 05:57 PM
I think if the framers of our country read these bloggs they would rewrite the 1st amd to our constitution. MOST of you aka wendy,anthony wouild not be allowed to post because you have know thoughts. some of you keep talking about the school district management like they are not doing anythind it sound to me that the super is taking action. why don't you give them a chance. I know wendy we can't give them a chance because of the BIG COVER UP, according to you everything that goes on is a conspiracy.. hey wendy did you.evr see the moviemade about Howard Stern, I forget the name but their is a scene in the movie that is you. The producer from NBC says hwta's the number one reason why people lisen to howard answer they want to hear what he will say next. whats the number one reason that people that hate howard lisen to him they want to hear what he will say next. thats the same with you. some days I think you cant get any worse and then you do. I think your crazy but I love it. Don't go changing..... PS can you make another video they are they best.
Wendy Saddler May 05, 2012 at 07:00 PM
As usual "rocket" you can't handle the truth. The 1st amendment is a precious right that the founding fathers would not change, just to suit your desire to suppress the truth. Anthony, and many others, are just some of many people who see the truth and are not afraid to speak out. Your problem, is that you're so imbedded up Harran's back side, your conscience is permanently seared to the truth. Like the others, you have not been able to successfully refute any of my posts, because you like the others know that I am not only telling the truth, but that I have proof to back up everything I say. If I am lying, why is it that fire fighters (other than Union Fire Co.), and many others side with me? Why is it that the very people that Harran and Ponticelli have been LYING to about me, see the truth, and SIDE WITH ME?? My advice to you, is 1. Work on your spelling and grammar, and 2. GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF HARRAN"S BEHIND! BTW... I DID see the movie, and its called "Private Parts". The REAL reason Stern is listened to, is that he speaks his mind, and TELLS THE TRUTH, when others won't. That's what the 1st amendment is about!! Oh yeah, there is a character in the movie that fits you, Harran, Ponticelli, and every other person who has been swallowing the township's lies to an exact "T".................... "PIG VOMIT"
Wendy Saddler May 05, 2012 at 07:06 PM
Yes there is one its time 2, and you need to be aware of it. Did you know that Harran IS trying to cover up the following: 1. A volunteer ff from Newport, who is a paid ff, assaulting a volunteer ff from Newport?? 2. A high ranking ff from Cornwells, who is also a paid ff, sending questionable pics of himself to a female volunteer from Cornwells?? Just as Harran is trying to keep this a secret, He is also trying to keep the accident from the other day a secret as well. Open Your Eyes!!
rocket May 05, 2012 at 09:05 PM
Wendy I have decided to debate you in public as you requested if you dare. Pick a council meeting and ill be there. I will bring proof that you are lieing about everything.
thumbsup May 05, 2012 at 10:10 PM
Anthony the fire truck got hit by a driver with no licence, not to mention she wasn't watching the road (looking in the backseat). But it was accident and has nothing to do with the school district. I understand you are a tax payer and have questions about the SD but you are also a disgruntled person whom was fired by twp and got in trouble with the police (seems like you need to get your crap together before you worry about others).
thumbsup May 05, 2012 at 10:13 PM
Every time you post or blog you make yourself out to look like a bigger idiot. Thanks for the entertainment, by the way how did the union ff, that you think is so innocent make out in court the other day?
thumbsup May 05, 2012 at 10:21 PM
Wendy the majority township fire service thinks (know) you are a joke. The ff's (members of the fire service) that you talk to are misfits - from what I hear the one try's to be a photographer (but takes the worst photos ever) and one of the others has been a member of a fire company for almost 30 years (not a firefighter just a member) and still can get life member status (oh yeah and won't be voted back into office this year with the ff association)!! THEY ARE ALL LAUGHING AT YOU!!
rocket May 05, 2012 at 11:39 PM
Oh Wendy where are you. Have a change of mind
rocket May 06, 2012 at 01:37 PM
I wonder what was said that was deleted
john q May 06, 2012 at 02:01 PM
When are all these facts gonna come out? Apparently the one school district employee is also a fire chief?
rocket May 07, 2012 at 01:12 PM
wendy can you get ONE fact correct, he said 112 townswatch members not police officers. PS what about tonight, will you debate me on the facts at the meeting. I need to know asap because I'm going to have to change my hours for work. I guess if I were like you unemployed and lazy it would'nt matter I would always be free. If you don't show I guess we will finally know the truth and that is that you are a lier. You keep telling everyone to do something. Well now its your turn to 'put your money were your mouth is". I know you will have some excuss ie someone sick, you have date because of ALL of the guys that can't resist your big beautiful eyes (sorry to all the readers out there). DON'T LET YOUR FANS DOWN. See you tonight at 7:30 pm.
rocket May 07, 2012 at 11:16 PM
Wendy you nut did you read the other article. The twp got a grant stop being do dumb
rocket May 08, 2012 at 01:11 AM
Wendy I'm worried about you is everything okay
George May 08, 2012 at 07:03 AM
M. Trimble If what you state is true then step up & report it to the Superintendent.... !!!
M.Trimble May 08, 2012 at 03:37 PM
@George, don't worry, I already stepped up!! I didn't my part!
M.Trimble May 08, 2012 at 03:39 PM
@George, I stepped up, I DID my Part!!!!!
George May 08, 2012 at 10:41 PM
M. Trimble That is the proper way of handling matters of concern. Very Good !!!! Now if it is not acted upon.. Then start screaming... Good Job !!
john q May 09, 2012 at 06:45 PM
I think the employee who is a fire chief should have to step down it's an embarrassment for the fire company something has to be done in this matter...
ram patel May 11, 2012 at 12:00 AM
Now they want to raise our taxes, if those who stole time & supplies had to repay back what they took, maybe we would not have a tax hike. Now I hear an administrator in the facilities is caught on camera stealing fuel from the school district, for use in personal vehicles as well as pumping it into containers. When will this guy face the consequences, plus the husband who was fired supposedly hit in his wife's timecard nearly 40 times, when she never showed up on those days. These people should face criminal charges, they are not only stealing from the SD they are stealing from US, the taxpayers of Bensalem.
john q May 11, 2012 at 03:32 PM
The one is the chief of Cornwells fire company and this guy is gonna keep his job because he is signing like a bird! Snakes in the grass!
Haveanotheroreo May 11, 2012 at 04:27 PM
I swear some of you have nothing better to do with your time. Seriously 99% of the stuff on here is BS. Just some quick real facts. 1 @Wendy you need to just go away you have no facts to anything you say. You are to dumb to realize the person you are talking about is actually two different people. 2 John q the Chief you are talking about I know for a fact hasn't said anything cause he knows nothing. You should look at the guy who all of a sudden went out on workmans comp for a bird who is singing. That guy also has ties to the police so I am sure he k ows how to sing. 3 @ Anthony Pasqualone you have no right to say anything about anybody if I was you I would shut up before the stuff u were be looked at comes out. I am sure a certain bus driver has a few things they can say about you Creeper. You all need to get a life. Yes what happened was wrong but you should be yelling at the bosses they alowed this to happen and also the allowed the ones who did the most to get off Scott free by resigning the ones who are still there did nothing wrong. And if they did they should be alowed to do what the others did. Well except go out on workmans comp now that should be an investigation. Oh and one more thing at wendy you need to really get a life one day someone will expose you for the stuff in your closet and no not just the Oreos you know what I mean and you better hope people who know about u don't start singing cause u will really be embarrassed.
MrBensalem May 11, 2012 at 06:30 PM
Can we get back on track here and focus on the real problem. The real problem is how did this go on for at least 4 years and their immediate supervisor (facilities director Mr. Mosely) not know what was going on? I demand His resignation immediately. Either he knew about it the whole time and did nothing or he chose not to do his job ignore the things being said by other district employees and put his blinders on. Either way he needs to go no matter how politically connected he is!!
PATTY May 16, 2012 at 05:13 PM
This whole trash mouthing is ridiclous ... you all need to get a life ... until you wear and stand in there shoes ..none of you know or will ever know what the true facts are..and for john Q and his comment on sunday , mothers day , you should be ashamed of yourself writing crap and not spending time with your mom ..or maybe she is reading your bullshit and doesnt want to spend time with you ..
PATTY May 16, 2012 at 05:21 PM
Why you think you can do a better job? ...Not .. because your to busy bickering on here to have what it takes .... Get a LIfe ...
Robert M July 26, 2012 at 05:42 PM
I was just reading through some old material when I came across this string of comments which shows community concern which is healthy in that members are concerned with the well being of the township. I agree with many of the comments posted particularly with the notion that the administration that was in place needs to take ownership of this unfortunate situation. Anytime someone falsifies records or obstructs justice that individual should be as accountable as the perpetrator. It seems that the Business Manager and Superintendent (Jack Myers & Bill Gretzula) should be deposed or have themselves removed from office. Ohhh that’s right Mr. Myers retired and Mr. Gretzula resigned hmmmmmm is this a coincidence…
