A school board in Texas has scheduled a meeting to discuss assault allegations against superintendent Dr. Hafedh Azaiez.
The Round Rock Independent School District in the greater Austin area has scheduled a closed meeting for January 3 at 2pm to address assault allegations against Azaiez after a woman accused him of attacking her earlier this year, causing her to fear for her life and the life of her unborn child.
The board will also discuss allegations that the superintendent used local law enforcement to cover up criticism of himself.
The Texas Education Agency sent a letter to the board in mid-December from TEA Monitor David Faltys that recommended Azaiez be placed on administrative leave while the investigation related to the assault and cover up allegations was carried out. The letter was provided to Fox News.
Some critics and parents in the district have raised concerns that the meeting’s unusual scheduling time of 2pm seems aimed at preventing parents from attending due to work and other daily obligations.
“I believe that scheduling this meeting at 2 p.m. has the net effect of denying real-time access to our community,” said Danielle Weston, a member of the board.
