A local activities director and dean of students is placed on administrative leave.
James Oliver with the Altoona school district removed himself as athletic director last year following controversy involving his firing of head football coach Steve English. Oliver’s removal then led to Connie Biedron being removed as district superintendent. Oliver was re-instated as the athletic director this school year. Interim superintendent Dr. Ronald Walsh confirmed Oliver was placed on leave, but says because it’s still under investigation, he can’t provide any other information.
