Official quits after state report

School facilities chief accused in contract bid probe

Brockton’s school facilities director has resigned following a two-year state investigation that accuses him of violating procurement and ethics laws by allegedly funneling more than $1.3 million in construction contracts to friends and business associates.

Interim School Superintendent John Jerome said he has accepted the resignation of George Bezreh, who had led the school facilities department since 2001. It was not clear whether Bezreh, a Mansfield resident, will face any criminal charges.
