    One of the city’s top education officials was busted in
    Wisconsin on charges he used a computer to facilitate a child
    sex crime, according to police.

    David A. Hay — schools Chancellor Richard A. Carranza’s deputy
    chief of staff — was arrested at an airport in Milwaukee Sunday
    as part of an undercover investigation, said a spokesman for
    police in Neenah, Wis.

    Hay, who made $166,156 last fiscal year, will be fired and has
    been removed from the city’s payroll, Education Department
    spokeswoman Miranda Barbot said.

    “These allegations are incredibly disturbing and absolutely
    unacceptable,” Barbot said. "We referred this to the Special
    Commissioner of Investigation and we will fully comply with any

    Hay had no regular contact with children in his job at a central
    office, officials said.

    Investigators nabbed Hay "following an ongoing undercover
    Internet Crimes Against Children Investigation” with assistance
    from the Milwaukee County Sherriff, Neenah police said.

    He was booked at the Winnebago County Jail.

    The allegations appear to indicate that police suspect Hay of
    contacting a minor for sex. Under Wisconsin state law, using a
    computer to facilitate a sex crime means “us[ing] a computerized
    communication system to communicate with an individual who the
    actor believes or has reason to believe has not attained the age
    of 16 years with intent to have sexual contact or sexual
    intercourse with the individual.”

    Police said the investigation is ongoing.

    Hay, who began working at the Education Department in 2016, was
    a high school teacher and principal in Wisconsin from 2005-2014,
    according to his LinkedIn page.

    He received a doctorate in education from Harvard University,
    and served as a special assistant and organizational director
    for former Chancellor Carmen Fariña before taking over his
    current position in October 2018.

    Mayor de Blasio’s office declined to comment.
