    The school committee in Wilmington, Massachusetts, is meeting Monday to discuss OUI allegations against the school superintendent.

    The Lowell Sun reports that Superintendent Mary Delai was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence back on August 25 in Danvers.

    Delai recently began her third year leading Wilmington Public Schools. Several weeks ago she made headlines when she allowed a longtime gym teacher accused of domestic violence back on the job.

    She explained the decision to allow him back was based on his tenure and record of performance in the district.

    She added in a statement that she hopes "people respect that he is owed his day in court and his right to privacy."

    It's not clear yet if she will face any disciplinary action for the arrest.

    The meeting is closed to the public, but the Wilmington school committee chairwoman says the group will make a statement after the closed session.
