Kentucky's Attorney General conducted an investigation, beginning in 2011, into Greene's alleged mismanagement. Upon presentation of the evidence, in May 2012, Floyd County Circuit Judge, Johnny Ray Harris, assigned a new school board. The ruling also banned Greene and Sister Emma Kriz, the former principal, from any further school involvement.
The school's campus was built largely with volunteer labor and many of the workers at the David School are technically long-term volunteers rather than employees and are provided with a small stipend and housing.
The David School was featured in the six-hour documentary series Country Boys which was broadcast in Frontline on the PBS network in 2006. Filmmaker David Sutherland spent 3 years at the David School chronicling the lives of two at-risk adolescents, Cody Perkins and Chris Johnson, following their lives as they grapple with and overcome daunting emotional and physical obstacles related to their unique family lives and the economic situation of this region.
