An open records requests submitted by Make CCSD Great Again reveals Clark County School District (CCSD) Superintendent Dr. Jesus Jara emailed other Superintendents and the head of Nevada Charter Schools, Governor Sisolak appointee, Rebecca Feiden, cheering that mask mandates are a strategy that may limit free speech. “Noone will be allowed in our board meeting without a mask. You must wear a mask to enter our board meeting tonight. Good times! Maybe this strategy will limit public comment.”
‘In May, the board voted 4-3 to extend Jara’s employment through Jan. 18, 2023. Trustees Linda P. Cavazos, Danielle Ford, and Lisa Guzman voted against.
Ford said she was the trustee who initiated the discussion of Jara’s contract. She said he is “not the right leader for the district going forward.”
Trustee and President Linda Cavazos is claiming that she is being ‘retaliated against’ as she is also being considered for removal at tonight’s meeting. As reported by Fox 5 KVVU:
‘Ahead of the meeting, Trustee Lola Brooks sent a letter to Cavazos regarding an additional measure to remove Cavazos as president.
“During the pandemic, when I questioned your erratic and micromanaging behavior, which was very clearly outside the scope of your duties in your role, you told me that I suck as a leader and refused to reflect on your own actions or take responsibility for the choices that you, yourself, made,” she wrote in part. “You have all the hallmark traits of a board member with no understanding of their role. This is extremely problematic since you’re supposed to be modeling and enforcing appropriate board behavior.”
She claimed the board president had used her position to rally principals against the superintendent.’
Tonights meeting is open to the public and is scheduled for 5pm at the Edward A. Greer Education Center, 2832 East Flamingo Road. (Masks are required).
