Plymouth School Superintendent Eleanor Cruz, 62, is taking a leave of absence as she’s investigated for misappropriation of funds while serving in the same capacity for 7 1/2 years in Hebron.

The Board of Education says they fully back Cruz, though an audit of her two months in Plymouth is being done to provide transparency to residents.

She allegedly spent over $15,000 worth of credit card expenditures and other payments not related to her job while in Hebron.
