RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Although next week’s proposed board meeting to discuss Pedro Martinez's contract will not happen, a meeting to discuss his conduct as Superintendent could still happen at a later date.
"The board feels that it owes it to the public to deliberate in a legal gathering about what to do in future meetings and how that’s to be handled," said Washoe County School District outside attorney Kent Robison.
The Washoe County School District brought up more than a half dozen Martinez conduct issues in a lawsuit response filed July 29. Among the listings, the Washoe County School District claims the plaintiff (Martinez) would not agree to additional counselors after the 2014-2015 budget was passed.
He is also accused of not consulting the board of trustees when he made "substantial increases to the executive leadership staff in 2013."
After calling all school board members, News 4 only received a response from Howard Rosenberg. "I wish that we were able to say more, but we can’t," said Rosenberg. "At least not yet."
