It's a Setup, Folks

The Trustees aren't actually backing down but are trying to set up Pedro Martinez by inviting him back to work so they can fire him the "right" way.

Martinez should tell the board to shove it.

“The events and circumstances surrounding last week’s discussions had more to do with attitude, demeanor and lack of cooperation than it did with certifications and diplomas.

On advice from outside counsel, and because of the position taken by the media and Superintendent Martinez, the Board understands that last week’s actions may be void under Nevada law. Rather than debate this complicated issue, we have agreed that last week’s events are void. Superintendent Martinez was never terminated or fired as Superintendent of the Washoe County School District, and we expect him to return to work and fulfill his responsibilities and duties immediately. We are hopeful that Superintendent Martinez’s future communications and interactions with the Board be more cordial and civility can be restored.

We are trying to schedule a Public Board of Trustees Meeting for August 15, 2014, at which time Superintendent Martinez’s contract and performance thereunder will be addressed publicly.”

They decided last week's events are "void." What the goddamned fuck crap is that? The AG hasn't declared ANYTHING to be "void" yet, but the district decides the fiasco is void and wants to do a "do-over."

The board hasn't backed down at all.
