DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - State Department of Education records show Duluth's school superintendent has been working in Minnesota without a license required for his job.
The Duluth School Board placed Superintendent I.V. Foster on paid administrative leave Monday night while it investigates allegations against him.
The Duluth News Tribune reports board members would not comment on the investigation.
Foster did not return calls to the newspaper Tuesday.
Executive Director Stan Mack of the Minnesota Board of School Administrators says state law requires the district to employ a licensed superintendent.
Foster has a valid Illinois license, but Mack says the Minnesota equivalent expired for Foster on June 30. Foster began working for the Duluth district July 1.
Mack says Foster told him he applied for his Minnesota license on Monday.
