Angry Parents and Students Show up at Pine-Richland School Board Meeting

Nearly 200 angry parents and students gathered outside the Pine-Richland School Board meeting last night. The crowd booed school board members who were escorted into the meeting by Pine-Richland Police.

The parents and students continue to be angry over the firing of Pine-Richland’s Football Coach, Eric Kasperowicz. Last month the school board announced that Kasperowicz and his entire staff’s contracts would not be renewed.

The school board gave the reasoning that there was an investigation and it revealed that there were years of hazing and bullying within the program.

Kasperowicz and the student-athletes have said that the allegations are not true.

Kasperowicz won four WPIAL titles, two state championships.

The board has acknowledged the frustration and anger, but they stand by their decision.
