Baldwin High principal on leave pending investigation
Baldwin High School Principal Natalie Gonsalves has been placed on leave "pending an investigation," Department of Education Maui District Superintendent Bruce Anderson confirmed Monday, the Maui News reported.
Anderson said Gonsalves' leave began Thursday, a day before Baldwin's graduation ceremonies.
Vice Principal Philip Gilbert has temporarily been assigned as principal and is managing the school, Anderson said. Baldwin's last day of class is today.
Gonsalves could not be reached for comment. A call by the Maui News to Gilbert's office was not returned.
Gonsalves served as principal of Honoka'a High School before taking over at Baldwin in 2006.
