The Round Rock ISD board of trustees will meet Jan. 3 to consider and possibly take action on a recommendation from Texas Education Agency monitor David Faltys to put Superintendent Hafedh Azaiez on administrative leave.

The recommendation is pending an investigation of underlying conduct described in a protective order the Travis County District Court issued in July.

A one-page letter from Faltys attached to the board agenda also recommends the hiring of an external investigator.

The board originally voted 5-2 on June 14 to hire Azaiez as superintendent for a three-year contract with a $350,000 annual salary.

Community Impact Newspaper has reached out to RRISD for comment regarding the recommendation from the district's monitor but did not hear back as of press time.
