When you are the head of a HR, SOMEBODY who you have screwed in the past (which comes with the position), will be MORE than glad to remember to return the favor when the time is right. Cordova prided himself on being tough. will be interesting how this little drama ends. Bet you & I (taxpayers), will end up paying for it..........

Mr. Cordova i not quite the man his attorney describes. But then his attorney is getting paid to say these things. For the average person who has never had to deal with Mr. Cordova, you are lucky. He has never been impartial. He is very condesending and has his own personal agenda. From day one, he and LaQuita Wheeler we working together to get Perkowski out. Cordova has wanted to be superintendent for LONG time and was willing to put Wheeler in as HR director. How wonderful would it be to have a narsacistic superintendent, Cordova,and a vindictive HR director, Wheeler. That's what they wanted.

CMS would be much bettr off to terminate both of them ASAP. Neither of them put our chilren first. They are power hungry and very selfish.

I'm not sure this one is a better or worse soap opera than the Charlotte Neil one- her husband was threatening school board members because she would not fire a coach who was involved in his own scandal

You need a fuggin' subject, dumb-ah asss-ah! First person declaratives must begin with 'I' or 'We' or 'Somos' etc. The same goes for that idiot who posted about "Bars".

Simply put: start your sentences with 'I'. It's just a keystroke. And those three exclamation points has just landed you on probabion. You're on my crooked-finger list, Mr.

This is all just everyone getting into everyone's personal business. Ted is HR he has every right to fire n hire. That's why he gets paid $130.000 per yr. if a teacher did wrong then put them on leave or fire them that's teds job. An no I am not one that is sleeping with him, I just think if he is the HR an getting paid that amount let him do his job. Here's the gossip, Laquita has something on Ted, he has to follow her instruction, or she'll rat him out on something, Gary wants to get rid of Ted becaUse he is afraid Ted is going to get his job as superintendent. The teacher at high school that Ted fired because teacher n student got into a fight, called Steve West n told him Ted was going to fire this teacher, so Steve west called Gary, without calling Ted an confronting him Gary called an had the locks changed so Ted couldn't get n his office. Laquita has a lot of people doing diry thing for her an getting away with it an getting other people in trouble. Causing problems, an who every is signing as "nope" I think I r one that knows Laquita she's got you writing for her, cause every post about Laquita, seems like u defend her all the Time. N don't tell me to get my facts straight cause I know what I.'m talking. I know facts n I have connections, u don't have to have money to get people to talk to u. Just stay off the post "Nope" tell Laquita we.,re on to her !

Honestly, everyone at Central Office knows what is going on around there. It's about time someone started the ball rolling on some spring cleaning. BTW, the teacher you are talking about didn't get into a fight with the student. The student thought she was being cute and jumped on his back, which made him lose balance and fall, apparently hurting her in her in the process. There was a whole bus full of witnesses. If he really got into a fight, he wouldn't be back at work.

Thanks, for answering my question. All the drama going on in Carlsbad is almost unreal. The other day I was on the current argus website and showed my girlfriend all the headlines (The Mayor, the four school district employees, and the CPD.) She is not from Carlsbad and thought I was exaggerating all the scandals going on right now. Then I think back to Coach Potter, Standard, and Groves. Carlsbad has some serious ongoing problems.

I'm so tired of the unfounded gossip about Ted. His so-called affairs are the product of vicious gossip mongering so typical of Carlsbad. The fact is Ted is the only one doing his job in central office. He was suspended because he refused to lie to the PED investigator. Gary technically suspended him for being mean to a teacher who physically manhandled a student. This teacher has a history of verbally abusing students & peers. He should have been fired but is being protected by Steve West & Gary. Ted isn't a part of this scandal. I'm sure the district will have to pay out settlements to any number of students & staff who have been victimized by Perkowski & board members.

Teachers and staff:
My suggestion is to join the union; either AFT or the NEA. These folks will help you in more ways than one. I had a lousy principal, and with the support I received from AFT I was able to get him fired.

Remember, it was the union that brought us weekends. Let the union help you.

I wish there were more time and energy spent on teaching our children and making them civil human beings. We have our priorities very messed up. Instead we place our attention on rumors, true or false, and not on the education we are paying for. We are teaching them to act negatively and be rewarded. In a perfect world our teachers would be able to discipline and correct behavior, but are tasked with teaching unreal expectations. Maybe all the school board and administration need to be replace with people that have recently been in the classroom dealing with today's children. Time's have changed in the classroom and my children are learning all the wrong things at school. They are learning from terrible examples, not the teachers placed in the schools but the administrators actions in and out of public.

At least Game of Thrones is enjoyable to watch. Carlsbad just gets more embarrassing and pitiful. The schools have more scandals than any soap opera, the newspaper runs more gossip than news, and every bit of it flows like garbage onto our kids. It's no wonder so many young people in this town don't know how to behave. Look who their damn role models are. Pathetic.
