OLATHE, Kan. (AP) -- More than $10,000 has gone missing from an Olathe elementary school's parent teacher organization.

The Kansas City Star (http://is.gd/TLewhA ) reports that police are investigating after leaning last month about the possible theft of PTO funds from Westview Elementary School.

Olathe police say the report involves $10,640 over the time period from Aug, 1, 2010, until the end of June this year. No charges have been filed.

Olathe School District chief financial and operations officer John Hutchison says the PTOs operate independently and maintain their own funds separate from school district funds. Hutchison says that twice a year, the district conducts workshops and provides information to PTO members about safeguards and best practices for handling funds.
