Open Government Advocacy Project:
Custodian charged with \"operating business\" in Belleville schools
 

Issue Detail:

 
My Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request has revealed that in December 2011, the Belleville Board of Education (Essex County) filed sworn tenure charges against school custodian Miguel Valladares. Those charges and supporting affidavits are on-line here According to a filed statement by Superintendent Joseph Picardo, Valladares, who had been employed as a school custodian since 2003, had placed his own vending machines in two district schools. Valladares allegedly stocked the machines and took the money from them \"for at least three years\" while school officials were not aware that the machines were on school property. In his defense, Valladares claimed that he serviced the machines on his lunch break and that \"he turned over monies to the [School 8] principal by sliding envelopes under the locked door at the main office.\" The filed papers do not indicate whether or not an investigation was made into the allegations regarding the complicity of the principal.
