The principal of The Met High School has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation into allegations of misconduct, a Sacramento City Unified School District spokesman said Friday.
District spokesman Gabe Ross confirmed that Principal Allen Young was placed on leave Wednesday afternoon, but said he could not provide details of the allegations.
"We're just beginning an investigation," he said.
Young said in a email Friday night, "The allegations are unfounded and will be proved as such at the conclusion of the investigation."
The Met High School, at 810 V St., has an enrollment of 274 students. It is one of five charter campuses operated by the district. Ross said Assistant Principal Vince Wolfe has been placed in charge of the school.
On Thursday, district Superintendent Jonathan P. Raymond sent a brief letter to parents informing them of Young's leave.
