TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — Central Alabama Community College President Stephen Franks has been placed on paid administrative leave.

The Alabama Department of Postsecondary Education made the announcement, saying the decision came as part of a statewide evaluation of the state's two-year college system.

Dean Argo, a spokesman for the state agency, said the school and others have been moving to a new software program with a stronger financial accounting package. He tells the Daily Home of Talladega (http://bit.ly/VSpJta) that the school's business office was having difficulty with the transition.

Argo said Alabama Community College System Chancellor Mark Heinrich felt Franks should be placed on a paid leave to bring in "a fresh and objective perspective to oversee the business office review and software implementation."

School spokesman Brett Pritchard said the school isn't prepared to make a statement.
