San Ysidro Schools Superintendent Manuel Paul remains on paid administrative leave following no reportable action from the board of trustees Wednesday.
Paul was placed on paid administrative leave on Jan. 15, following indictments by San Diego County Grand Jury and a federal investigation into a parking-lot cash exchange. He could not be reached for comment.
Assistant Superintendent Gloria Madera will continue her role as acting superintendent, according to board president Jason Wells.
Paul testified under oath in a June deposition about a lawsuit that involved outfitting the district's eight schools with solar panels. Paul said he accepted about $2,500 in cash from a different contractor who was seeking construction work with the district.
The story was first reported by NBC7 Investigates in August.
A Grand Jury issued indictments in January to Paul and 14 others in a South County bribery scandal involving multi-million construction contracts and three school districts. Paul's previous defense attorney said the superintendent is innocent, and he is scheduled to enter a plea in April.
The board of trustees set a Monday special board meeting to resume talks about whether to terminate Paul's contract or place him back in his position as schools chief.
The meeting will take place Monday at 5:30 p.m. at the district offices at 4350 Otay Mesa Road.
