Subject: Kristel Foster is Clueless & Delusional and Cam Juarez’s Campaign is Idle
Kristel Foster, who is obviously desperate and delusional, has emailed another of her top ten goals from her one and only Superintendent’s Strategic Plan. Many who receive her emails forward them with comments such as, “She does not have a clue!”; “Is she nuts?”; “Get a hold of this pack of lies!”; “The HT Sanchez Kool-Aid must cause hallucinations.”; and “This is nothing more than lie-filled propaganda.”
The process to develop HT Sanchez’ Strategic Plan was loaded with mostly TUSD staff. Many of us took part in the Strategic Planning process and we know first hand exactly who made the decisions on the goals and it was NOT the participants. It was HT with support from his “leadership” team. TUSD proposed the language for each area; it was tweaked to some limited degree and then HT Sanchez called it a community process. It was nothing of the sort. It was a manipulated activity that took place over several months and it was done to serve his needs and not those of students.
The “then” leadership team included Adrian Vega, Steve Holmes, Eugene Butler, Yousef Awwad, Ana Gallegos, all of whom have left TUSD. They each saw the situation for what it was and high-tailed out as far from HT Sanchez and his corruption as possible.
From the Strategic Plan, Kristel Not-So-Clear-Foster has adopted her top ten favorite goals. If it weren’t so absolutely pathetic it would actually be funny.
A goal or a plan DOES NOT MEAN THAT A SINGLE THING HAS HAPPENED TO OBTAIN THE GOAL OR IMPLEMENT THE PLAN and in the case of TUSD, the goals have been a sham for HT Sanchez to obtain non-deserved salary increases and bonuses in the amount of almost half a million dollars as approved by Kristel Foster, Cam Juarez and Adelita Grijalva. There has been limited, if any, follow-through on the Curriculum Audit and its recommendations or on the Efficiency Audit and its recommendations. Student loss continues to drain TUSD, teacher positions are left vacant at a much higher rate than any surrounding school district, student achievement continues to be a problem, etc. Plans such as the USP have become a recurrent punching bag for HT to blame for his ongoing failures. Pedicone continues to receive sharp attacks from Sanchez when he speaks to administrators, the business community and his three Board members. And Kristel Ann Foster perpetually applauds whatever he does. It is totally dysfunctional.
Cam Juarez is simply missing in action. His campaign is invisible and we hear that he is once again counting on Raul- his savior- Grijalva to carry him to victory. Cam has been a do-nothing Board member. He is unprepared for meetings, not having reviewed the agenda items. He often piggy-backs on Adelita Grijalva or on Kristel Foster and then he fills a lot of space in complimenting HT over and over and over and over again. His “fill” is to compensate for his failure to intelligently discuss anything on the agenda. When he does his “piggy-backing” it is mostly B.S. It is so obvious and so very embarrassing. Probesito. NOT!

The following goal is the latest one that Kristel emailed.
Did she happen to see the coverage on Catalina High School and the filth that students had to contend with for years? Oh, we almost forgot she depends only on HT Sanchez to give her his distorted facts. She then absorbs his lies as hers and she goes on her merry delusional way. It took over a year for the District to remedy some of the filth that was reported by a Catalina HS employee a year ago and the immediate “fix-up” probably took place because TUSD knew that KGUN9 was investigating the situation. The story hit the news last week and once again embarrassed TUSD. Check it out for yourself at:http://www.kgun9.com/news/former-tusd-athletic-director-claims-year-long-unsanitary-conditons
Valerie Cavazos has quickly become a champion in our viewpoint. Her investigative reporting is exposing the severe state of TUSD, one story at a time.
As you can see from her coverage on Catalina High School, students were subjected to urine-drenched conditions, pest invasion, along with the absence of any privacy due to missing bathroom stall doors. It is disgusting and it is deplorable that Kristel Foster has the nerve to email out the above goal as a sorry attempt to sugar-coat the facts. Does she think she fools the public.
Kristel Ann Foster is a disgrace as a Governing Board member. She not only ignores problems she tries to cover them up. Cam is an idle-do-nothing Board member. Both must to be ousted from their seats!
We were told by one of Kristel’s former endorsers that she has withdrawn her support for Kristel based on her erratic and irresponsible behavior. The former endorser said that several of Kristel’s endorsements are being retracted This means that many with influence are attempting to distance themselves from her lunacy.
