All bow before the power of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce!!!!
After their press conference yesterday, after a two-hour closed-door board meeting, it appears for now that HISD superintendent Abe Saavedra's job is safe for another year.
At least it is according to a terse statement by district spokesman Norm Uhl:
On Dr Saavedra's contract, the HISD board took no action last night and I'm told no action is expected today, which would mean the contract will automatically renew for another year as of tomorrow (October 1.)
So there you go. We assume Saavedra is even now planning another massive bond program without any input from neighborhoods or school-board members.
