    Principal uses struggling school’s funds to build private gym

    Sources tell the Post that principal Jazmine Santiago allocated school funds for her private gym at PS 269.

    The principal is in much better shape than her school.

    Principal Jazmine Santiago used school funds to install her own private gym with a bench press, pull-up bar, treadmill, elliptical machine and thigh exerciser on the third floor of PS 269 in Flatbush, sources told The Post.

    When some staffers questioned the expenditure, Santiago claimed she shares the equipment with older students, according to one source.

    But the underperforming school only goes through Grade 5, which would make the oldest students 11 years old and an average 4-foot-10 — not tall enough to reach some of the heavy-duty equipment.

    “Their bodies are not ready for a treadmill,” one teacher said.

    Staffers fumed that Santiago converted a storage room into her own private workout space in June 2014 with no consultation.

    “She comes in early, she goes to the gym. Even when class is in session, she’s still in the gym,” said another teacher. Both teachers declined to give their names for fear of reprisal.

    Teachers say the room is always locked and not accessible to other staff, much less students.

    “No, no, the kids have their own gym,” said the teacher. “Her gym is on the third floor and it’s her own personal gym.”

    Santiago, who makes $124,319 a year, refused to meet a Post reporter on school grounds and didn’t return calls.

    The elementary school has struggled during her four-year reign. Only 16 percent of students passed state English tests and only 12 percent passed math exams last year.

    Parents say the exercise equipment “makes no sense.”

    “That’s not right at all,” said Mike Johnson, 26, who was picking up his third-grade stepson Friday.

    “The funds should go to helping school issues like going toward bullying campaigns or extracurricular activities. I don’t understand how this helps.”

    Department of Education spokesman Harry Hartfield said the matter would be investigated.

    I gots me a feeling that spending the cash to teach 8 year olds with 26 year old step dads is every bit as big a waste of cash

    I'm not sure what bothers me more:

    1. The principal embezzling funds to install her own private gym.

    2. The shitty excuse of "I share it with the kids" even having the remotest possibility of being believable... Yet you know people will accept that excuse

    3. The fact that the 26 yr old has an 8 yr old step son...

    Or the fact that the step father believes that the funds should be better spent on EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES or BULLYING CAMPAIGNS, when only SIXTEEN PERCENT of students meet national required standards...

    Those assholes' salaries blow my mind.

    When Newsday published some payrolls of the district administrators on Long Island, some of them were making over 400k.

    16%? that much. I was sure it would be around 2%. Public high schools here are a joke.
