The Sweetwater Union High School District board will vote tonight on whether to renew Superintendent Jesus Gandara’s contract. A new agreement with the embattled leader would stretch until July 2012 and keep his salary at $250,920 plus a monthly expense allocation of $800.
Gandara has locked horns with both the teachers union and managers in his three years with the school district. There have been complaints about his leadership style, spending and demotions of top leaders.
