DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) — Delphi Community School Corporation Superintendent Greg Briles has been placed on paid administrative leave, according to School Board President Neal Anderson.
The corporation announced Briles was placed on leave Monday night. That's the same day the school corporation announced a $1.5 million loan due to "cash flow" issues within the school, according to attorney Nicholas Otis. He said cash flow issues are common across schools in the U.S. right now. However, Delphi schools requested an emergency loan, which is more uncommon.
It's unclear why the school board chose to go with an emergency loan.
According to Otis, the state gives the school corporation two payments a year. The next payment won't come until November, and the corporation needs funds now.
The emergency loan requested must be paid back by Dec. 31.
Otis couldn't confirm why the superintendent was specifically put on administrative leave. News 18 is waiting to hear back from Ed Eiler, who has been contracted by the Delphi School Corporation's Administrative Assistant to oversee the school's finances.
Briles has served as superintendent since 2016.
