FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - The Fairbanks North Star Borough School Board has scheduled a Tuesday vote to make Karen Gaborik the interim superintendent.

Gaborik became acting superintendent in April after the school board voted to place Superintendent Pete Lewis on administrative leave.

After a month of investigation, the board told Lewis it intends to terminate his contract.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports (https://is.gd/QWjvxM ) that the board placed Lewis on leave as it began an internal investigation into the district’s handling of complaints about inappropriate conduct by employees. The investigation began shortly after a tutor at Hutchison High School was charged with sexually abusing a student.

Lewis has called for arbitration with the board, which is still pending.
