[DI] - Even though acting Midd-West Superintendent Daphne Snook may not have broken school policy by monitoring district emails, Valley legal experts say she still may have broken the law. Snook was suspended without pay during the Midd-West school board meeting Monday night pending the outcome of a criminal investigation into a breach in the districtâs email system. Snook admitted to briefly monitoring board email correspondence, which she said is allowed under the districtâs policy on acceptable Internet use. Snyder County DA Michael Piecuch confirmed that an investigation is ongoing and said there are statutes in the law that address security breaches that would include emails, wouldn't comment further.
