According to the Brooklyn Eagle, an investigation revealed that the money — raised by parents and students through countless fundraisers — went missing from the PTA’s bank account in 2007 through 2008.
She told investigators she used the money to pay the rent on her apartment and business, for fertility treatments, and to “keep her family living in the lifestyle they were accustomed to.”
The investigation began in January when the PTA discovered that Hogan wrote two unauthorized checks worth $5,500.
Parents at P.S. 29 invest much time and sweat equity in raising funds at P.S. 29, a great school in Cobble Hill. If you know live nearby you've no doubt been talked into magazine subscriptions, holiday shopping, movie benefits, wine tastings, book readings and other events. It's sad to think that someone might have taken these precious funds, used to replace money the state and city cut from the school budget over the past two years.
Below are some P.S. 29 events we've covered.
