SCHENECTADY - Former Schenectady Superintendent Eric Ely is some hot water with his current school board in Southbridge, Mass.

The district says it has placed Ely on administrative leave in connection with a complaint received by the school committee.

The details of that complaint have not been made public.

It's not the first time he's been in trouble there either. In August board members accused him of lying and tried to get him fired. The motion, however, failed by a vote of four to three.
