Administrators at the Quincy Community Schools have now been placed on leave, after questions were raised about their handling of the alleged sexual abuse of a student.

WWMT reports that at a special meeting Saturday, the Quincy Board of Education voted to put both Superintendent Craig Artist and High School Principal David Spalding on administrative leave with pay. Some parents and students have been vocal in decrying the district’s response to allegations against former teacher Jason Ferrell, saying that complaints about worrying behavior were ignored.

Ferrell quit the district in January after working for 20 years, and has been arraigned on criminal sexual conduct charges in both Branch County and Calhoun County. Allegedly, Ferrell had sexual contact with a 15-year-old student over several months in 2016, at several locations.

He faces life in prison if convicted of these crimes.
