Trustees to consider action on Arlington superintendent

ARLINGTON -- School trustees announced late Friday that they will "consider possible action" on Superintendent Hector Montenegro's employment status Monday.

The news came in a revised notice for a special meeting set for 8 p.m. Monday.

According to the meeting notice, school board members plan to meet in closed session to consult with attorneys "concerning possible action in connection with the Superintendent's employment status and deliberation of Superintendent personnel matters."

Trustees could then take action on the issue.

The board called the meeting Thursday night after placing Montenegro on paid administrative leave and appointing Deputy Superintendent Jerry McCullough interim superintendent.

Trustees and attorneys are examining Montenegro's relationship with several educational organizations, some of which have paid him honorariums. Two of the seven groups involved in the investigation do business with the district.
