The principal of Rockville High School in Vernon will be allowed to keep his job after he was recently arrested for drunken driving.
Principal Eric Baim had been on paid administrative leave ever since his arrest July 13.
Berlin police pulled over the vehicle Baim was driving on the Berlin Turnpike after he ran a red light.
Officers said that is when they noticed Baim appeared to be intoxicated and conducted a field sobriety test, which resulted in Baim being arrested for driving under the influence.
The Vernon Board of Education decided Tuesday night that Baim could keep his job as principal, but he would be facing a punishment. Details of what that punishment will be are expected to be revealed by the superintendent at the next Board of Education Meeting.
Baim is due in court on Friday to answer to the DUI charge.
