Statement from the PUSD Board of Education

On November 15, 2023, the Governing Board retained an outside law firm to conduct an independent investigation concerning the Del Norte High School softball program, which included but was not limited to the conduct of staff, students, administrators, and the Superintendent. We have reached a sensitive point in the investigation and received information regarding the impact of this process. In an effort to avoid distraction and to ensure continued focus on the District’s business and commitment to serving our students and community, the Board is placing the Superintendent on paid administrative leave, effective immediately. As the investigation is still pending, and student and personnel matters are at issue, the Board is unable to provide further comment at this time.
