EMERGENCY BISD MEETING TO SETTLE ACACIA AMEEL CASE
 
The meeting is on the 24th at 4 p.m..  Below is the verbatim reasoning for the meeting as stated by BISD.
 
"Situations have arisen that require the prompt attention of the Board of Trustees at this time.

The school district is currently involved in lawsuits in which it has been sued by Acacia Ameel.

On January 23, 2013, the court in the FMLA lawsuit denied the pending motion for continuance

and set the trial for January 28, 2013. Subsequent to the court hearing where this action took place,

the attorneys in this lawsuit developed a settlement proposal, which if approved, would resolve all

pending or threatened litigation matters between Ms. Ameel and the District. The resolution of

this matter requires action by the Board of Trustees prior to the trial date. The settlement offer's

final terms were unforeseen and not reasonably anticipated by the District. As such, the District is

proceeding with an emergency meeting with as much notice to the public as reasonably possible.

The failure of the Board to take immediate action would likely result in the unnecessary and

extensive expenditure of public funds, increased litigation and further unnecessary legal liability."
 
EDITOR'S ANALYSIS
 
Apparently after denying her grievance the Board in less the 24 hours has found a heart.  I do not doubt that the judge denied the continuance because anyone born alive with a brain knows so long as Presas-Garcia, Longoria and Saavedra remain on the Board money will be wasted.  The judge probably saw last nights board meeting and decided enough with these clowns.  They pay millions to people who according to the TEA were justifiably fired, but refuse settlement to anyone who refuses to play ball.

UPDATE FROM THE HERALD:

"BISD Trustees Catalina Presas-Garcia and Luci Longoria received subpoenas, along with BISD Superintendent Carl A. Montoya, Sylvia Atkinson, area assistant superintendent for the Hanna and Veterans clusters and the former assistant superintendent for human resources; Marcela Zarate, administrator of certified personnel; Berta Peña, the assistant superintendent for support services; public information officer Drue Brown; Jimmy Haynes, assistant superintendent for operations; Chief Financial Officer Ismael Garcia, and Sandra Lopez, the area assistant superintendent for the Lopez and Rivera clusters."

I would pay to see Presas-Garcia under oath while filming the jury's reaction - it will be one of complete and total disbelieve - BISD will settle before they allow Presas-Garcia or Longoria to testify.

Same on people that sue the hand that feeds them, just because they were reassigned.
Shame on shergold to make his living off of BISD.

Shame on the elected people who behave like incorrible brats storming out of meetings and screaming like clowns when they don't get their way. Shame on them for still not knowing the damage they continue to do to our kids and for still using the district to their own selfish ends. Shame them for treating faculty, students and staff like cattle to be moved, shelved and destroyed at their whim and shame on blogger #1. You are clueless.

If you believe that over the last couple of years that people were simply reassigned, supposedly for the best interests of the district, you are an idiot.

Are you referring to Minerva?

The last two years with Rick and his clowns have been retaliation and political. This includes Minnerva Pena.

You know Cata, no one is buying your drivel - everything you have done has been based on hate and ignorance - if you think law enforcement is not all over you - you are delusional - 60% of the people voted against you -

The TEA destroyed Hector Gonzales and Art Rendon - but you blame Rick Zayas for that - move on - if Antonio Juarez was so competent why is the BHA a mess? Why did the Healthsmart Lubbock pay $4.8 million to the city of Lubbock.

What makes you so dangerous is - you are beyond clueless as to morality - you simply have no sense of right from wrong

Why was Acacia flaunting BISD had settled with her and this is how she bought her Lexus. Did Minerva guarantee her she had the votes for her? Right or wrong she would be bring her back?

What a coincidence the judge is Elia Cornejo, the one that took her family to Disney World with taxpayers' money.

Bunch of corrupt SOB's!!

Is she had teh votes when then did she not win on Tuesday? She did not have the votes - the insurance company is at their limits with BISD - they agreed to a number - they told BISD they were going to put the money on the table and that if BISD did not agree then BISD would be liable for every penny over the agreed settlement - it is that easy - Presas-Garcia is besides herself that everything is falling apart - word is Saavedra is ready to cut and run on Presas-Garcia - which will end her for good - even before the inevitable indictments which I am sure are coming

To the idiot that thinks this is about money. Mrs. Ameel is taking the step that many feared to take. She loves what she does and because she can survive on what her husband makes, she can take this all the way through the process. Come on "Raider" kick there ass!

I really,really,really,really, hope that Acacia prevails. Acacia is a nice lady, a good administrator and she was thrown out of her job because she just wanted the Vets new STAMP program to implemented in a sane orderly manner.

so, what happened today?

BobbyWC said...

No idea, I emailed numerous sources and everyone says the same - do not know - if they settled they probably agreed on some form of press release - so we have to wait

Remember, at BISD if you are a good Board member, administrator, teacher,coach,maintenance person or any other job they do not want you. They fear the honest hard working employee because that employee don't like playing their silly but most often very serious games of russian Roulette.They like to tell it like it is and some of the head people in decision making positions seem to be to sensative to take it, so they get rid of them. Funny thing is they can"t even fire anyone properly. Sometimes you just have to let ignorance be.
