One of the top leaders of the Meridian School District has been put on paid administrative leave.
The district's attorney, Stan Eisenhammer, confirmed Assistant Superintendent Tom Gaudreau is on leave, but would not say why.
Gaudreau has been off the job since the middle of December. Eisenhammer would not say whether Gaudreau is being investigated for anything improper.
Eisenhammer said he has to protect the district, the board, and Gaudreau.
