What began as an on line school with a few hundred students has grown into an empire, developing curriculum and spawning cyber schools throughout the nation. But now the founder of the Pennsylvania Charter Cyber School, Dr. Nick Trombetta, finds himself the target of a federal grand jury questioning whether he got rich using taxpayer money.
After an FBI raid and a grand jury investigation, this week the PA Cyber Charter School Board fired four key administrators and its attorney. But its new attorney, Robert Stewart, says the events are unrelated.
Like a Phoenix from the ashes, Midland, Beaver County, rose from rusty hulks of the Crucible Steel Mill into a vibrant community. People there credit PA Cyber and its founder, Nick Trombetta.
To many, Nick Trombetta is a visionary who has launched the cyber school revolution in Pennsylvania and is a hero to graduates of Pa. Cyber.
