More Washoe County School District Gossip

One of the principals who had been placed on administrative leave this past school year due to alleged parent threats won as the mother was found guilty of threatening him.

Threatening public officials is a big no-no.




I mentioned in the previous post that unqualified current WCSD superintendent Pedro Martinez was to get his first annual evaluation tonight.

The board is in love with him, just as it fell in love with Heath Morrison before he decided to give WCSD the shaft and move on to greener pastures.

Whether Martinez will do the same thing remains to be seen.

Trustee Dave Aiazzi, a former city councilman said the process of a public review is the only part of open meeting laws he disagrees with. State laws mandate the review be done in public meeting.

“Forcing us to do evaluations in public tends to dissuade us from being as frank as we may need to be with any superintendent,” he said. “I find that more than not they are glowing with little if any constructive criticism.’

But Aiazzi praised Martinez. Aiazzi credited him for making dramatic changes and for being able to release the district’s performance framework where it ranked 89 schools in at timely manner.

Aiazzi also addressed any perception in the community that he is “out to get Martinez” or this review was the date he would be fired.

“Nothing is further from the truth,” Aiazzi said. “It is my sincere hope that today will be yet another beginning for the trustees and Pedro.”

We shall see...
