After the close of a marathon 7-hour meeting at Southwest High School, the Sweetwater Union High School District Board on a 5-0 vote decided to terminate Jesus Gandara’s employment as superintendent.

A big round of applause and kudos must go out to the board members and Board President John McCann for making the right decision and working to get the district back on track.

The only downside to the joyous news would be that the stipulation of the termination agreement means that Gandara will take 18-months worth of pay, plus take vacation and leave until September 1st — on which date he becomes vested into CalPERS. *sigh*

I suppose when it comes to politics there’s always a fly in the champagne, right?
