A lot of school time is being spent on the Save Auggie’s Ass Campaign at Pueblo. Our concern is that he is doing a great deal of damage in finishing out the year at Pueblo and we recommend that he be removed from the Pueblo campus and reassigned to a well supervised central admin. area until his contract ends. The martyr environment that Auggie has created at Pueblo is not healthy for students or employees.
A strange thing happened this week in TUSD…
At this last Tuesday’s board meeting was a vote for the renewal of contracts for all the principals. This included the renewal of Pueblo HS Principal Auggie Romero who has been beleaguered with many scandals; he was reprimanded for being physically violent at a national conference, accused of changing grades and violating state law and allowing their basketball gym to be vandalized through negligence at the cost of around $1,000,000 in damage.

From: TUSD Whistleblowers– Comprised of a Large Group of Extremely Concerned TUSD Administrators, Teachers, Retired Administrators and Parents, Grandparents
Subject: ALL IN THE FAMILY; TUSD is Treated as an Employment Agency for the Corrupt: Shawna Rodriguez, Adelita Grijalva and Auggie Romero
Adelita Grijalva may have started a very brazen and unacceptable trend in TUSD. Her actions have made it perfectly all right to ignore all ethical norms and policies having to do with nepotism. (She is big in ignoring ethical standards and many TUSD policies when it serves her!). The public did not realize that she had voted to have her mother in-law, Olga Gomez, hired as a principal until it was already too late. She and HT Sanchez kept it a secret until Olga Gomez was hired. It was too late to do anything about it. Maybe.
