Harrisburg schools recovery officer resigns

Harrisburg School District

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The man appointed by the Corbett administration to guide the financial recovery of the Harrisburg School District has stepped down from the post.

Chief Recovery Officer Gene Veno has resigned, according to a statement Friday from the state Department of Education.

His resignation is effective June 30.

The statement did not give a reason for his departure.

Veno was appointed to the job in 2012 after a newly-passed law allowed the state to take over schools deemed as “financially distressed.”

According to the statement, the Education Department will now begin the process to select a new chief recovery officer.
