ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The top administrator of four Albuquerque charter schools is taking a leave of absence amid an FBI investigation.

Southwest Learning Centers on Monday announced he voluntary leave of Scott Glasrud until the schools' governing councils can meet to consider next steps.

Officials say the councils have no knowledge of wrongdoing by anyone associated with the schools.

The FBI says agents removed boxes Thursday from Southwest Secondary Learning Center charter school as part of an ongoing investigation. Members of the schools' governing board say they don't know what the investigation is about, but they're cooperating and have instructed staff to provide all information being requested.

Glasrud is the head administrator of the Southwest Secondary Learning Center, Southwest Intermediate Learning Center, Southwest Primary Learning Center and Southwest Aeronautics, Mathematics and Science Academy.
