GARFIELD, N.J. (AP) - Garfield’s school board has disciplined 13 employees who are accused of under reporting their incomes so their children could receive free or reduced-cost lunches.

The Record (https://bit.ly/1v940KW ) newspaper reports two employees, including the secretary to the superintendent, have submitted their resignations.

The disciplinary action ranges from a 30-day unpaid suspension to a 120-day unpaid suspension. All employees are prohibited from receiving a raise for a year. All must pay restitution.

No names were released.

The school board says it’s up to the state whether to prosecute any of the employees.
