The Irvington Union Free School District Board of Education announced that it will be cooperating with investigations conducted by the Westchester County District Attorney and state comptroller’s office into a former employee.
The Board of Education announced in January that it was reviewing “what appeared to be discrepancies associated with the record of a particular employee." They later announced that the employee in question has been identified as Jesse Lubinsky,” the district’s Director of Technology and Innovation.
The investigation came following reports that Lubinsky was pulling double duty, working as a contractor for a private Google partner while on duty for the school district. Following those reports, the district launched an investigation that has been referred to the DA and state comptroller.
In an email to parents, Irvington Board of Education President Michael Hanna announced that the district was passing off the case.
“Legal counsel for the Irvington UFSD Board of Education has conducted an initial review into certain discrepancies associated with the records of a specific district employee,” he wrote. “The Board has assessed this information and in recent weeks, brought it to the attention of the Westchester District Attorney and Office of the New York State Comptroller in a request for independent agency review.
“The Board will fully cooperate with the work of these agencies, and we have been asked by the District Attorney not to offer further comment at this time.”
Lubinsky resigned on Jan. 24 as the district investigated the claims into his discrepancies.
“In addition, the Board will soon begin its own independent review of the District’s Human Resources practices and processes through the retention of an objective third party professional,” Hanna added. “We expect to provide information on this initiative in the coming days, and will continue to update our community as necessary.”
