WYCKOFF, N.J. — David M. Browne, the superintendent for the Randolph school district, was placed on administrative leave on Oct. 13 after he was injured in a fire at his Wyckoff residence, nj.com reported.
Marc Zitomer, attorney for the Randolph Township Board of Education, confirmed on Oct. 15 that Browne had been placed on paid administrative leave, nj.com said. Zitomer did not indicate the reason for the leave due to concerns about potentially violating privacy rights and medical privacy rights, nj.com reported.
Browne's employment status changed this week when the school board approved the change in an administrator's leave status from family medical leave to paid administrative leave "effective September 18, 2015 until further notice," according to a personnel motion, nj.com said. Jennifer Fano is currently serving as the acting superintendent, the article says.
Browne, who receives an annual base salary of $167,500, took a leave from his position with the Randolph school district last month for what school officials described as a "family medical leave," according to nj.com. They have declined to provide further details of the leave, citing personnel reasons, nj.com said.
