Principals From Hell: Marcella Sills Now Accused of Fraud Along With All Her Other Crimes Against Children at PS 106

School of No’ principal accused of fraud

The Department of Education has officially charged “School of No” principal Marcella Sills with ripping off the city as well as her students.
Sills stands accused of “time/attendance misconduct, conflict-of-interest violations, defrauding the DOE of funds and negative notoriety,” DOE spokesman David Pena told The Post.
Because the DOE had granted her tenure, Sills is entitled to an administrative hearing on the charges. A trial date is pending.
The DOE yanked Sills from the school in February after Special Commissioner for Investigation Richard Condon found she had lied about her attendance while collecting full pay.

His probe followed Post reports that Sills routinely showed up late and often played hooky over the nine years she led PS 106. Staffers complained to DOE officials soon after she started, but nothing was done.
Sills will collect a $128,207 salary pending the trial.
She has been “assigned to administrative duties,” Pena said. Officials would not say what she does, where she works, or whether she shows up.
The Post dubbed PS 106 the “School of No” because it had no books for the Common Core curriculum, no gym or art classes, no nurse’s office and no special-ed teachers for classes with learning-disabled students.
