14 Boston school workers fired or put on leave

The Boston School Department has identified 14 employees who have faced criminal charges, prompting school officials to either fire them or place them on administrative leave, according to a report presented Wednesday night to the School Committee.

School officials in an interview declined to identify the employees or say which schools they worked at, citing state employment privacy laws. But they said the workers were all support staff, and the charges that showed up on their criminal records included possession of drugs or assault and battery.
