They were talking about hiring a consultant to oversee some district construction projects. The consultant just happened to be the Board President’s brother
The board decided to place Puig on leave a couple of weeks later.
Puig’s attorney says his client hasn’t violated any district policies and didn’t break any laws.
Puig was hired as South San ISD in June of 2020.
Henry Yzaguirre will continue to serve as interim superintendent.
