BSSD Board puts Superintendent on administrative leave

By Diana Haecker

For undisclosed reasons, the Bering Strait School Board put BSSD Superintendent Brett Agenbroad on administrative leave until his contract expires in June 2015.

There are no investigations pending. It appears that philosophical differences may have been the reason for cutting Agenbroad’s time at BSSD short.
