    Why was the special school board meeting cancelled?

    1. Because money grows on trees at SBISD?

    Yliana and Chuy couldn’t get Obregon to side with them as planned. Granted the passing of his wife helped in his decision not to continue; but, I’m sure Obregon realizing how messed up Yliana and Chuy are had a lot to do with not extending his duties as interim super.
    Celeste won’t either. She could care less. She is retire rehire (getting the big bucks, legs kicked back, enjoying the circus of a show).
    Limon is getting paid to do nothing. Working or not, he’s getting what he needs to get done done. Watch out lawsuits if the board fires him (personal at that possibly). Maybe that’s why this investigation is being prolonged. So that they won’t fire him. So that they won’t be sued. So they won’t have to cough up personal money. Makes sense.

    Limon – out with pay
    Obregon – out but got paid
    Celeste – no chance with pay

    Hello Santa Maria.

    Ya es mucho! Tira la pelota!

    Yliana – tira la

    Chuy, to run for school board himself, has to stoop down to favor for favor, bribes, you scratch my back I scratch your back, threats, empty promises kind of tactics to get his ideas done

    Here’s the joke of the day! “We have to keep in mind the cos of securing an interim superintendent, being mindful of taxpayer dollars.” That ignorant educated SBCISD President, Yilana Gonzalez
    Her and her three won’t even consider their boy, Obergon’s consideration of Celeste Sanchez? Now, they want some hot-shot who can lead the district in the direction that we all don’t know what she is looking for? Will he take $717.00 a day? With credentials like that, don’t think so? As for the alleged accusations, how much is this law firm at $150.00 an hour going to take? Sounds like most of Ms. Gonzalez’ accusations are null. How much will this law firm milk before making their report?
    Anyway, here we go again with these four!!!

    The athletic director reports to the supt and not the board. Sure hope someone did his evaluation or this board will again pay for an administrator’a lack of following due process.
    Good luck coach!

    To whom it may concern:
    (Super, Interim, Board, anyone with a brain)

    Gantt’s contract is up for renewal. Either renew it or get rid of him. The clock is ticking. Coaches are being offered other jobs while waiting to see what happens with Gantt. Don’t let your addiction to political bs interfere with the future of the sports and football program.

    How much more money are we, the taxpayers, going to continue to pay for the decisions of those 4?
