SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - Hampden County District Attorney Mark Mastroianni told 22News his office has been asked by the city of Springfield to help look into an audit at Putnam Vocational Technical High School.
City auditors were asked nearly a year ago by new principal Gilbert Traverso to do a full audit of all of the school's departments. What they found did lead to staff suspensions and at least one firing according to city solicitor Ed Pikula, however, until the school department has a chance to look over the audit, the details of the investigation or what they found will not be made public.
Mastroianni said that his office will look at the irregularities found in the audit to determine if anything criminal happened. If so, he will open a full investigation.
