Orange County DA raids Newburgh Free AcademyPosted: Updated:
The Orange County District Attorney Office raided the Newburgh Free Academy for a second time this school year on Monday.
Agents showed up on Monday looking for documents related to the high school's online classroom program called APEX.
The program allows students who are failing or behind on credits to make up work in an effort to graduate on time.
In October 2018, the DA’s office served the school with a search warrant to find records regarding academics, athletic participation and attendance.
