In an August 17 written statement, Board President Janice Crutchfield says that the Board decided to place Superintendent Roberta Selleck on paid administrative leave on July 15 while the Board pursued its investigation.

Selleck has said that she was taking medical leave to care for her husband. According to the written statement, Selleck never requested medical leave and that was not one of the reasons for the Board's decision.
