COATESVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A prosecutor says officials at a large southeastern Pennsylvania school district exchanged "shockingly racist" text messages on district phones.
Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan told The Associated Press on Monday that his office learned of the messages during an investigation into the Coatesville Area School District.
He says the text messages "looked like something from 1813, not 2013."
The Daily Local News of West Chester says Superintendent Richard Como and Director of Athletics and Activities Jim Donato used the district-owned cellphones to exchange a series of racist texts in June. Both resigned abruptly during the first week of school.
Phone listings for Como and Donato weren't immediately available.
