The Board of Trustees takes the findings raised by the Fiscal Crisis and Management Assistance Team (FCMAT) investigation very seriously. As such, in closed session, the Board of Trustees took action to place Dr. Karen Janney on paid administrative leave effective immediately. The Board’s action is not a disciplinary action, but is to support and ensure an efficient investigation of the concerns raised in the FCMAT report.
We will continue to cooperate with the San Diego County Office of Education, FCMAT, and any other state and federal agencies involved in the matter. Additionally, the Board took action to appoint Dr. Moises Aguirre to serve as Acting Superintendent to ensure continuity of education and operations.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees and Dr. Aguirre, we thank you for your continued efforts in support of the Sweetwater Union High School District.
