The Seattle Public Schools general counsel has been placed on administrative leave, the school district confirmed Wednesday.

 Ron English has been removed from his “regular work environment for an indefinite period of time,” Superintendent Larry Nyland wrote in a letter addressed to district colleagues. Seattle Public Schools spokeswoman Stacy Howard confirmed the leave Wednesday evening.

Nyland termed the leave “nondisciplinary in nature” but also said English was placed on leave to “support a fair, timely, and thorough investigation involving employee conduct.” Details about the investigation are not clear.

Assistant General Counsel John Cerqui will lead the legal department during this time, according to the letter.
