FLORISSANT, MO (KTVI) - FOX 2 has learned that Ferguson-Florissant School District Superintendent Art McCoy has been put on administrative leave.
The school board voted late Wednesday to place McCoy on leave due to, "differences in focus and philosophy between the Board and superintendent." The board says the leave is not an indication of any wrongdoing.
"As this is a personnel matter, we cannot disclose further details; however, the Board feels that it is in the best interest of the District to address this situation by placing the superintendent on paid administrative leave as we work through the areas of concern," said Paul T. Morris, board president.
The board did not give any time frame for the leave and McCoy is still being paid.
The district's chief accountability officer, Larry Larrew, will now serve as superintendent.
