Board Chairman Ashley Smith Juarez, for instance, wrote in her notes that Vitti is “often disrespectful to board members (and) has misrepresented the truth publicly and privately.” She called him stubborn and said he “struggles with judgment and communication,” often reacting without planning or informing the Board.
Please read the entire article it is amazing.
A couple things, this comes on the heels of Smith-Juarez telling the superintendent to look at her and stop snickering when they were having a conversation and her saying that the board may need a mediator to help facility communication between the super and the board.
Also Mrs. Smith-Juarez has been a reliable supporter of the superintendents often voting for his ideas to the chagrin of board members Couch, Wright and Hall whose districts for the most part are being affected.
I think Mrs. Smith-Juarez is starting to understand what teachers have known for a while and that’s the superintendent is in over his head and he is not a good or effective leader. I had this boss one time and she was both bad at her job and mean and I used to lament, if she was nice or good at her job then I could deal, but she is neither and it is unbearable. I wouldn’t be surprised if the board chair is coming to the same conclusion.
In November he will have been here four years and its not a good sign when one of your biggest supporters on the board thinks you willingly lie to them and the public.
