RENO, Nev. (AP) — Washoe County School District superintendent Pedro Martinez has been let go, although trustees offered little explanation for the ouster.

The announcement came late Tuesday, two years after Martinez was appointed to the post.

Trustees said in a statement that they are in discussions with Martinez but can't offer specifics about the move for legal reasons.

Deputy Superintendent Traci Davis will oversee educational programs in the interim, while Chief of Staff Kristen McNeill will oversee operations.

Martinez served as the deputy superintendent of the Clark County School District before topping five candidates to take the helm of the Reno-based district in August 2012. He signed a four-year contract with base pay starting at $238,000.
