Pleasanton schools superintendent Rick Rubino, who remains on paid administrative leave amid a district investigation into an undisclosed personnel matter, is set to be a topic of discussion during a special school board meeting scheduled for 6 p.m. tonight .
"Superintendent Rubino's status has not changed," Laursen said. "He is still on paid administrative leave. I can confirm that the agenda item (tonight) does concern this matter."
This marks the third week in a row the school board has called a special closed-door meeting, and Friday's agenda mirrors that of two other meetings.
During the Dec. 19 meeting, the board placed Rubino on paid administrative leave following a closed-session meeting with an agenda stating the board would hold discussions on "public employee discipline/dismissal/release" and two potential court cases.
District officials have said Rubino was placed on leave pending the outcome of an investigation into a personnel matter but have declined to elaborate further.
On Dec. 27, the school board took no action after meeting for more than an hour in closed session. It's not known whether trustees talked about the superintendent again at that meeting.
Employee discipline and anticipated or pending litigation are among the items the board is allowed to talk about in closed session, and the agenda doesn't have to name who or what is being discussed, per state law.
Tonight's meeting will take place in the district office boardroom, 4665 Bernal Ave.
