After taking numerous personal and vacation days in the past few weeks, ECISD deputy superintendent Joe Gallegos has been placed on paid administrative leave.

ECISD interim superintendent Hector Mendez placed Gallegos on paid leave Monday, Mike Adkins, Ector County Independent School District communications director, said.

Also on Monday, Gallegos’ office appeared to be packed up, his nameplate was gone, his secretary was reassigned and his extension was changed to another administrator.

ECISD trustees plan to discuss and possibly take action on a separation agreement for Gallegos at 11:45 a.m. Thursday in the boardroom at 802 N. Sam Houston, according to the board agenda.
