RENO (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.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
