Jenny Georgina Enriquez-de Bermant, 48, has been charged with making $8,000 worth of purchases while she was principal of Kilby Elementary School between June 5, 2011, and March 4, 2012.

An internal audit report had revealed the expenditures, and Bermant, of the 3000 block of Vidalia Court in Dumfries, was placed on administrative leave this week while police investigated.

Kilby, in Woodbridge, is now being led by Amy Jordan, who was brought out of retirement for the job.

“Distressing as the embezzlement allegations are, they reaffirm that Prince William County Public Schools’ checks and balances are working to ensure that all Division funds are spent to advance education,” said a statement by Phillip Kavits, a school spokesman.

Bermant and her husband, Daniel, filed for bankruptcy in 2008, according to court documents.

Daniel is listed as a Language Arts teacher at Gar-Field High School on the Woodbridge school’s Web site.

Bermant was released on a $3,500 bond and is scheduled to be in court June 13.
