Trustees with the Newport-Mesa Unified School District met behind closed doors Monday night to discuss recent felony charges filed against embattled Supt. Jeffrey Hubbard.

Hubbard, who was charged last week with misusing public funds four years ago as superintendent of the Beverly Hills Unified School District, plans to take the week off before Christmas break, it was learned late Monday.

No reportable action was taken, board President Karen Yelsey told the press after the emergency meeting at district headquarters.

The board's legal counsel, Spencer Covert, was present throughout the meeting, but little was known regarding what was said during the closed session.
