The Texas Education Agency confirmed to Community Impact Newspaper on Jan. 5 that the agency is conducting an active investigation into Round Rock ISD Superintendent Hafedh Azaiez.

This comes as the district's board of trustees were given a recommendation by its TEA monitor, David Faltys, to place Azaiez on administrative leave pending an external investigation. Details of the TEA investigation are still forthcoming.

Community Impact Newspaper previously reported that the board will meet Jan. 6 to again consider whether to place Azaiez on administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation, consider engaging the services of an independent investigator and the appointment of an acting superintendent followed by a search for an interim superintendent.

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


This is an ongoing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
