The San Benito CISD Board of Trustees voted Tuesday evening to recommend reinstating embattled risk-manager Janie Gonzalez after she was terminated this summer by Superintendent of Schools Antonio G. Limón.
Limón fired Gonzalez on August 23 for allegedly lying about communication with insurance vendors which School Board President Yliana G. Rodriguez attempted to award district policies via a now infamous letter.
The letter in question was signed by Rodriguez in May and prepared by Gonzalez at the board president’s behest, the reinstated risk manager has claimed.
The recommendation to reinstate Gonzalez, which will be decided upon by the superintendent, came at a Level IV grievance hearing held in open session during a regular board meeting Tuesday night. Full details of the meeting, in which Gonzalez’s grievance hearing was one of four addressed, will be reported in the weekend edition of the San Benito News.
