REDMOND, Ore. -- The high school principal in one of Oregon's largest school districts has been placed on leave, but officials won't say why.

The Bend Bulletin reports the Redmond School District is searching for a replacement for Brian Lemos, principal of Redmond High School.

The school district sent out a press release on Friday announcing the decision, but neither the district superintendent nor its human resources director would say why.

Lemos worked as a principal for the Crook County School District for nine years before joining the Redmond district in 2009. In 2010 he took over as principal at the high school.

Lemos had his teaching license suspended in 2000 after an arrest for domestic harassment. He has had other run-ins with the law, all before 2000.
