The teachers, who held an emergency meeting in Liverpool this week, had pay stubs showing deductions from their checks each pay period in 2005 for their retirement plans. They also had statements from American Funds and MetLife which invest the teachers' money that showed no contributions to the funds since December 2004. The teachers contributed between and a month into the plans, accord- ing to interviews and their statements. "It's said first-grade teacher Angela Romano, one of the school's 45 instructors. "That's our money the school made no matching contributions that we elected to put towards our re- tirement." The teachers have contacted the state attorney general's office to see if the state will take legal action against the school. Paul Larrabee, a spokesman for the at- torney said they have received several complaints about the charter school and that the office is an assessment of the facts so that we can act accordingly." Rick Capozza, president of the charter school's board, said the board approved making the payments July 7.
