THE golden rule went out the win­dow for a Florida prin­ci­pal — who’s ac­cused of steal­ing nearly $1,000 from a spe­cial needs stu­dent!

The nine-year-old with a men­tal dis­abil­ity brought $2,100 of his par­ents’ money to school on Oct. 23, ac­cord­ing to a Pasco County Sher­iff’s Of­fice po­lice re­port.

An as­sis­tant prin­ci­pal at Con­ner­ton Ele­men­tary in Land O’ Lakes counted the cash and put it in the of­fice of Prin­ci­pal Ed­ward Aber­nathy, who was out for the day.

When the child’s par­ents re­al­ized he’d taken the dough, the mother went to the school to col­lect it.

Aber­nathy handed her “a wad of money,” but it was $900 short, po­lice say.

Af­ter Aber­nathy made “mul­ti­ple in­con­sis­tent state­ments” about the miss­ing moolah, he was charged with grand theft on Nov. 8.
