Former high school assistant principal sentenced for stealing from union welfare fund



WHITE PLAINS – A Congers man, who served as assistant principal at Woodlands High School in Hartsdale and as former treasurer of the Greenburgh Teacher’s Federation and the Greenburgh Teacher’s Welfare Fund, was sentenced to one to three years in state prison for stealing union funds.
Frank Gluberman, 69, previously pled guilty to felony grand larceny in connection with the theft of over $794,000.  He paid full restitution to the victims.
The District Attorney’s Office said he wrote checks out to himself, his two daughters and to pay property taxes on two homes he owns.
Over a seven-year period, from 2006 to 2013, he wrote checks to himself from the Greenburgh Teacher’s Fund checking account and the GTF Welfare Fund totaling $794,865.19.  He forged the signature of the president of the GTF as he needed dual signature authorization to make payments.
The larceny came to light in September 2012, when he was promoted to assistant principal and had to relinquish his position as treasurer of the union funds.
