KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – The Kettering Board of Education is ready to discuss why it put the district superintendent and treasurer on paid administrative leave.

The board will hold a news conference Tuesday morning to the discuss the move.

Superintendent Jim Schoenlein and Treasurer Steve Clark were put on leave May 6.

Board President George Bayless told 2 NEWS two weeks ago that the board was cooperating with a State Auditor’s Office probe of the district having to do with campaigning for last fall’s levy.  The office is also looking at money raised by the group Citizens for Kettering Schools.

The board hired attorneys to conduct an internal review of testing and levy issues.

A statement released on the day the action was taken said no student educational needs were affected.

2 NEWS Investigates Natalie Tendall has been working this story for weeks. She will be at the meeting Tuesday morning to bring you the outcome.

And, of course, we’ll get it to you as soon as we have it on WDTN.com.
