Punxsutawney School Board begins the process of dismissal for high school co-principal

PUNXSUTAWNEY – Dismissal proceedings have started against a Punxsutawney High School co-principal who was arrested three times in four months.

In a unanimous vote this week, the Punxsutawney School Board approved a Statement of Charges against 45-year-old Paul Hetrick.

The board is also notifying Hetrick of his right under Pennsylvania’s Public School Code to request a hearing in front of the board.

In September and December, Hetrick was reportedly arrested for violating a Protection From Abuse order.

He was also arrested in September last year on DUI charges.
