The United States Attorneys’ Office has informed Lincoln Charter School for the Middle District of Pennsylvania that charges have been filed against a former employee of Lincoln Charter School, Eliseo Sierra.
Mr. Sierra has not been an employee with Lincoln Charter School since 2014.
Lincoln Charter School has fully cooperated with federal officials during the investigation from the time of the discovery of the circumstances that led to federal officials to charge the former employee with theft of federal program funds.
Since the time of Mr. Sierra’s departure, Lincoln Charter School transformed its administration and board governance, including policies and procedures, to ensure both fidelity to its mission and its responsibilities as a steward of public funds, both state and federal.
Lincoln Charter School is a vital partner within York City for both the education and care of its students and the role it plays for families and the community.
Lincoln Charter School thanks all of the federal officials, including the United States Attorneys’ Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, for ensuring that justice prevailed.
