The executive director of financial management for Hartford Public Schools has been placed on leave pending an investigation.
School officials said Joanna Laiscell, the executive director of financial management, was placed on paid administrative leave Friday.
“In the current matter, we are taking swift action to investigate and address concerns brought to the administration,” the statement says. “The school district will not have any further comments on this matter until a thorough investigation has been completed.”
NBC Connecticut reached out to Laiscell and she said she has nothing to say about the Hartford Public Schools’ decision to place her on paid administrative leave and doesn’t know why they made that decision.
