HERALD REPORTING AMEEL SETTLES

"BISD trustees Herman Otis Powers Jr., Luci Longoria, Minerva Peña and Christina Saavedra voted for the settlement, while board President Enrique Escobedo voted against. Trustees Hector Chirinos and Catalina Presas-Garcia were not present."

The story is very odd - "District counsel Arturo Michel said details would become available once the 404th state District Court approves the settlement."

But then the article seems to go on and details the terms of settlement - I think Arturo Michel is blowing smoke and trying to save face for BISD.  It is important to understand no loss income is a variable because she never lost income.  There was no win here for BISD, because it was not an issue.

Chirinos did not appear at the meeting because of an appearance of conflict of interest as it relates to Ameel.  Presas-Garcia also did not appear.

so she went ahead and took the money. I'm happy for her, but sad that she didn't get her job back. I would have liked to see the board forced into giving her her job back. the only thing the board learned from this is that no matter who it is, they can always pay someone off....

I do not believe at this late stage in the game she was pushing for her job back - she understands you put the students first - had she demanded her job back it would have meant punishing a possible innocent victim in the current principal, and disrupting the campus - that is certainly not Ms. Ameel's style

The Lady has Class. Maybe others at BISD can learn from Her.

According to the newspaper Cata Presas-Garcia was not present at the meeting. If that is the case, that looks really bad for Cat-the-Rat. Just saying..................
