I'm glad Ramos, Suarez, and Pizano put this guy out to pasture. Any other elected official would have swept this under the rug like a catholic priest.

So get over it...you guys lost the election and this board is doing a great job.

Helllllloooooo!!!! They are just covering their holes because if they were to keep him and this person goes to the cops then all of them would get it. Yes, we all know how stupid and corrupt they are but even they know better than to cover up sexual harrassment. Why are you giving them so much credit? If they were doing such a great job they would have never hired the principal to begin with. He's been around so that should have told them something.

Oh yes, great new board that voted to give a superintendent with no doctorate or experience in education a HUGE raise? He also has final say on who is hired as a principal along with Suarez and Ramos. I almost wish the victim in this case would have gone to the police so the board and superintendent could have been held liable and put through the ringer.

Yeah, that would've been nice but there are multiple "victims" here and it wasn't in any of their best interest to report this to the police. One is a classified employee who was willingly dating the guy and then got mad when she found out she wasn't his only one. But then the husband of the certificated employee got wind of it so what choice did the married woman have but to say he was after her and she was "afraid for her job". Whatever the case may be, this man shouldn't be in that position if he can't keep his brain in his pants. He's obviously of the same caliber as the board: stupid, stupid, stupid. Anyways, let's see who these poor already undereducated and underpriviledged kids get as a principal now. It won't be anyone much better with the way the selection process goes there. You're a friend of the sup or have political connections that he can benefit from, then you are in. Just look at the recent people placed in key positions. They came out of no where, have no experience, and all they know how to do is shake their heads up and down to him to keep him happy. Doesn't matter that they don't know what the hell they are doing. They just bow down to the master like the puppets that they are. Their time will come though. I just hope I'm near the area so I can personally laugh at them when their day comes.

Carranza was abusive, debasing, and downright mean. I know because I personally saw him viciously and blatantly belittle some faculty and staff members. I heard him brag about being "accountable" and look what he did. He deliberately harassed and demeaned people on a regular basis. I am not surprised at all that he is being accused of sexual harassment. His arrogance would suggest that he thinks he can do and say anything he wants. He is a fool and he was a sorry excuse for a principal. He is also a perfect example of how to act if you want to go straight to hell. The idiots who hired him (an aide (Ramos), a housewife (Suarez), and a vindictive fiend (Fernandez) should see this Carranza thing as a very real wake up call...You reap what you sow...

Good job Supt Fernandez--2 for two on your principal appointments. First a drunk, then a sexual harrasser. And we wonder why Leuzinger is doing so poorly. Nice to know we have yet ANOTHER person on payroll NOT performing a job!

No, the union did not choose Fernandez. Suarez and Ramos got installed on a Tuesday and fired Cheryl White (previous sup't) the next day. It went down real nasty and underhanded, but the bottom line is that it was 2 days before Christmas vacation (clearly a strategic move ie. everybody's gone, etc.). Shortly after faculty and staff returned in January, Fernandez was installed as the interim superintendent without any discussion or input from anyone other than Ramos and Suarez. Pizano's vote counts but she's basically useless because she's just a flunky for the other two. They all made a big deal about him being INTERIM and he even stood up in a public forum and said that he didn't want the job on a permanent basis ie he was jsut there to help the district return to solvency. They lied again and said they were going to start an official search. Of course, that never materialized and a year or so later, he was "named" as the permanent superintendent. With that came a $40,000 raise (that at the same time he and they were spewing forth lies about how the district was broke and faculty/staff were laid off). Did he ever interview for the job? Was the position ever publicized? To top it off, a couple of weeks ago, this same group of uneducated, ignorant idiots voted to give him yet another raise. Now, he makes $198,000/yr, plus benefits and fringes (3 year contract), and he DOES NOT even have a doctorate degree, in a district with less than 8000 kids. What the hell???? It is not surprising that they would hire another incompetent imbecile, Carranza, who has been at how many different schools in the last few years? He must be somebody's cousin....
