Administrators in the Farrel Area School District are not making public the name of an employee who faces charges.

Posts made Wednesday on the district's website and Facebook page by superintendent Dr. Lora Adams-King acknowledge that the employee has been charged and placed on leave.

While we fully understand the concern surrounding this matter, please know that the District has been made aware of the charges that have been filed against a District employee, and the individual was immediately placed on administrative leave pending an investigation. As this is a personnel matter, the District cannot comment further at this time. We ask for your patience and understanding as we work through this matter.

School officials have not named the employee, or the nature of the charges filed.
