WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut elementary school principal is on paid leave while officials investigate a trip he took with a student to Taiwan.

The Waterbury Republican-American reports (http://bit.ly/1Fx4sxV ) Carrington Elementary School Principal Kevin Brennan took the student to visit relatives of her late mother after getting permission from the child’s father.

The paper says the two took the side trip after concluding a 10-day tour of mainland China with a larger school group.

Brennan was placed on leave April 16.

Parents tell the newspaper that the side trip was discussed in planning meetings for the China tour. But Paul Guidone, Waterbury schools Chief Operating Officer, says Brennan never informed the district of his plans.

Police investigated and found no criminal wrongdoing. Brennan says his attorney has advised him not to comment.
