Subject: HT Sanchez’ Anonymous Whistleblowers in Texas
We just discovered that an anonymous group of whistleblowers was formed in H.T. Sanchez’ former school district- Ector County Unified School District, in Texas for similar reasons as those used in forming our group. Read more below.
Once HT Sanchez starts saying one thing to one group and another thing to another group, it becomes apparent that one cannot trust what he says, which is unfortunate for the students of TUSD that are simply pawns along the way to the superintendent advancing his personal career by using Tucson’s largest school district only as a launching pad to jobs that pay over a quarter-million a year.
Three Sonorans has written a lot about the position known officially as the CRPI Director that is in charge of the new watered-down “MAS” classes in TUSD known as “culturally relevant” courses. The position is now open again and applications are due this week.
Three Sonorans has been the only media keeping Tucson up-to-date with the latest on the Desegregation case, including recent filings by TUSD, the Special Master and MALDEF about fulfilling the Unitary Status Plan (USP); aka the “Deseg Order.”
New TUSD Superintendent HT Sanchez finally finishes his first year, and it appears the board could not be more giddy about what they call success in district that keeps losing enrollment each and every year.
Having met 100 percent of his achievement goals, TUSD Superintendent H.T. Sanchez was awarded a $12,600 bonus Tuesday.
The Tucson Unified School District Governing Board approved the bonus with a 4-0 vote. Board member Mark Stegeman was not present for the vote.
Governing Board members praised Sanchez and the path he has set TUSD just 11 months into the job.
For Sanchez, a first-time superintendent who is new to Tucson, the last year has been exactly what he thought it would be.
What kind of goals did you set out that give you a 100% rating and nothing but praise from the governing board members at a time when the Special Master and even MALDEF are stepping up their fight against TUSD?
It is also clear that classes for Mexican Americans, in particular Mexican American Studies, is nowhere near a priority for the current supe and Grijalvista board, and we have evidence to strengthen this claim.
