The Fairbanks North Star School Board has placed its superintendent on administrative leave.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://bit.ly/1kGVMpT) reports Pete Lewis will step aside and that an assistant superintendent, Karen Gaborik (gah-BOR’-ik), will work as acting interim superintendent.
The district announced the move Monday night in a brief press release. No reason was given for the change in the terse announcement put out at 10:37 p.m.
The announcement says the change was not a disciplinary action and did not result from any determination of wrongdoing.
The announcement was issued after the board met in a session closed to the public. The stated reason for the meeting was to discuss a personnel investigation and potential claims against the district.
