According to the Daily Herald, Bako was past president of Woodview PTO and a May 2012 newsletter stated she was leaving the post. I imagine the school has reviewed its PTO finances for any discrepancies. I've heard of no charges related to Woodview. http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20121126/news/711269752/

Ms. Bako left Woodview because her child was a 4th Grader and no longer had any kids at that school. She was not asked to leave WV. The parents and kids benefited a great deal from her participation at WV. . .I hope this is not a witch hunt.
