Boston school chief knew of investigation of headmaster

Boston School Superintendent Carol R. Johnson has known since November that one of her headmasters was part of a US Secret Service fraud investigation, but she took no action for three months ­because law enforcement officials swore her office to secrecy.

An official briefed on the investigation said that, initially, Johnson did not know whether Queon Jackson, acting headmaster of Madison Park Vocational Technical High School, was a victim or a perpetrator in the multistate credit fraud ring under investigation. The investigation is being conducted by the Boston Police Department and the Secret Service.
