MASHPEE, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts school superintendent has been placed on indefinite leave after allegedly barging into a student's home uninvited to see if she actually lived there.
The Cape Cod Times reports (http://bit.ly/1XUqLmy) the Mashpee School Committee voted unanimously Thursday night to place Superintendent Brian Hyde on paid leave following a 45-minute closed-door emergency meeting.
Hyde pleaded not guilty earlier Thursday to charges of breaking and entering with intent to commit a misdemeanor and trespass. His next court date is Nov. 13.
Marilyn King, the mother of a Mashpee Middle-High School student, says Hyde entered her home in September without permission, rummaged through her daughter's belongings and angrily demanded to know where the 17-year-old slept.
Hyde has said he invited into the home to do a routine residency check.
