Auburn school district to stop trying to reach out to Cayuga Centers over financial loss

The Auburn Enlarged City School District will stop its attempt to recoup its loss from Cayuga Centers closing its residential treatment program earlier this year.

The board of education approved a motion to end attempts to engage with Cayuga Centers; the district had been trying to recover over $200,000 it said Cayuga Centers owed. The motion was made following an executive session at a board meeting Tuesday night, Superintendent Jeff Pirozzolo said Wednesday.

The district operated a school for children in Auburn for years until Cayuga Centers abruptly announced in February it would close its residential treatment program in the spring, leaving district employees who worked at Cayuga Centers without jobs. Pirozzolo said Wednesday that he believed that every district employee who had lost their position have since been rehired by the district except for two who have found employment elsewhere and one who is still looking for work.
