Students at Gary Roosevelt were sent home Monday after water was shut off at the high school over long-term unpaid water bills, but there's a dispute over who's responsible for paying them. The high school has been operated by a private management company for about three years as part of the state's academic turnaround process. A spokesman for EdisonLearning says the firm has never received a water bill. He says the building is owned by Gary Schools and the district is responsible. Gary Schools Superintendent Cheryl Pruitt tells the Times today the district is not responsible for the utility bills at Roosevelt, now known as Theodore Roosevelt College and Career Academy. The students at Roosevelt are preparing for End-of-Course Assessment tests to receive their diploma.
