BISD MEETING - CASTRO PART TWO

UPDATE:

Castro is demanding the grievance brought by the parent be heard in open session.  This is his right.  The legal question is, and I do not know the answer, can a grievance involving a child be heard in open session.  If the answer is no, then this is just a game by Castro.  If the answer is yes there is a good chance the parent will drop it rather then expose their child to a public discussion.

Earlier today Castro announced he will have a press conference on Wednesday.  I will not allow for speculation as to the purpose of the press conference.  Trust me there is plenty and none of it is substantiated.

ORIGINAL POST

CASTRO'S PRESS CONFERENCE WILL BE AFTER MONDAY'S BOARD MEETING WHICH CAN BE EXPECTED TO LAST HOURS

I corrected the day, it is Monday not Tuesday.

A. PERSONNEL MATTER(S): 

"1. Board Self-Evaluation. 

a. Discussion, consideration, and possible action on complaint by parent regarding Board Member, Mr. Erasmo Castro's public actions. 

b. Discussion, consideration, and possible action to update Board Standard Operating Procedures Manual: District visits/events and social media related items.

c. Board Self-Evaluation"

On "B" a big part of the problem is really BISD's failure to understand BISD has no business posting pictures of children on their social media without the consent of the parents.  BISD has no lawyer and will never get this right.  This is more a BISD problem than a Castro problem.

A REMINDER TO BOARD MEMBERS

You can be sued for defamation per se during executive session.  I think it is coming. If only someone would leak the tape - then we will have two new trustees.  But as we learned in the Presas-Garcia case the tape can be subpoenaed as part of discovery.  And then that trustees career as an elected official will be over for ever.

Why Wednesday?

e will geHe will get out of the BISD meeting late Tuesday. He then needs time to consider what happens at the meeting then on Wednesday speak to what is happening. He has the right to give a measured response to his side of the story.

The Special Meeting is on Monday not Tuesday. Policy states the district determines open or closed. In the past the grieving side was asked if they wanted an open or closed meeting.

Sorry I messed up the date. We just have to wait for the meeting to see what they do about the grievance is open or closed.
