Comptroller finds $7.7 million state funds unaccounted for by special-ed schools



In response to the audit report, State Ed officials said in writing that they would “review and make adjustments to the Consolidated Fiscal Reports for inappropriate and/or unsupported expenses … and recover any overpayments as appropriate by recalculating tuition rates.”

In their response to DiNapoli, officials at Lake Grove said Bahrenburg “is no longer on staff. The current CEO earns a salary 80 percent less than his predecessor.”

Bahrenburg is listed on LinkedIn as a practicing attorney in Killingworth, Conn.


In a letter to the state comptroller dated Jan. 18, Prevost said the new board would amend bylaws to “avoid conflicts of interest or even the appearance of such.”

Her letter indicated that Mountain Lake had an Office of Children and Family Services agency review last November.

“We are now totally independent and have a new Board of Directors comprised of prominent and local business and educational leaders,” she said in her statement Friday.
