Agenda Item 3.01 will discuss the possible termination of Superintendent Jara and going over his employment agreement. A possible reason for his removal is the thought that he hasn’t made a significant change in the development of students and families


3.02 will discuss the possible firing of school board president Linda Cavazos.


Item 6.02 will address anti-racism, equity and inclusion in the district. This topic has been a subject of concern at multiple past board meetings with numerous parents and staff members of CCSD speaking on it during public comment.
