Lawsuits filed against TUSD by principals for previous admin’s actions

It appears that the rats scattered from 1010 before all the lawsuits due to their actions were filed…

In response to the complaint, TUSD denied those allegations in an April court filing. Stefanie Boe, a TUSD spokeswoman, said the district would not comment on pending litigation.

Since the lawsuit was filed, TUSD administration has had a turnover, said Ned Garn, the principals’ attorney.

Many people who were at the negotiating table with the principals’ bargaining representative, Educational Leaders, Inc., no longer work for TUSD, he said. Shannon Roberts, employee relations director, and Julie Tolleson, an attorney, have left since. Anna Maiden, chief human resources officer, is also on her way out.

“It will be interesting to see if the new power structure respects TUSD’s obligations or if they’re going to continue to adopt the position of the previous power structure,” Garn said.

  1. This is particularly interesting, because TUSD HR/Finance is over paid Sanchez & his cabinet members for their unused vacation for 2015-16.

    Their expensive stipends were added to their base salaries to calculate their rate of daily pay! Those stipends are listed as “special benefits”, not as salary.

    Adding the stipend to the base salary to calculate daily pay was a new break through in greed under the Sanchez/Soto/Maiden administration! Prior administrations didn’t add the stipend to their salaries.

    For Sanchez counting the stipend as salary meant he was overpaid $96.15/day. For his cabinet members, the overpayment was $30.77/day. That may not seem like that much, but the size of the overpayment for cabinet members ranged from a total of $308 to $1,333 more than they were entitled to. For Sanchez, the over payment was $2,885!
