LANCASTER, CA – Valley Union High School District (AVHSD) seems to be nothing short of a pilot show for a new reality television show “Real Crooks of the Antelope Valley Schools”. Since the abrupt resignation of AVHSD School Board Member Robert “Bob” Davis the board has been split down the middle and unable to decide to further school district Superintendent Dr. Vierra’s agenda.
Desperate times call for DESPERATE measures! Most recently AVHSD School Board Members failed to come to a consensus on when to have their annual organizational meeting mandated by California Education Code. These annual organizational meetings are held to select who will lead, set the agenda and be the official spokesperson of the School Board as the President. School Board Vice President, Clerk and Los Angeles County Representative are also required. Julie Drake
Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) Superintendent Debra Duardo stepped into order a special meeting on behalf of the Board for December 13 after the board could not agree at its meeting on December 12 according to the Dr. Vierra’s paid newspaper Antelope Valley Press. Julie Drake of Antelope Valley press is paid substantially by Dr. Vierra in an effort to help her from recover from bankrupt.
It explains why Valley Press has worked so hard to cover up all the money pocking of Dr. Vierra and his cronies. Well Board Members Ruffin and Parrell unable to attend at short notice missed the special meeting on December 13. School Board Members John Rush and Jill McGrady only two able to attend at short notice had no opposition when Debra Duardo temporarily appointed School Board Member Jill McGrady to the position of Clerk of the board.
First to congratulate School Board Member McGrady on her temporary appointment was our Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Paris who took time from his busy schedule from keeping our community’s homeless population from receiving vital services to offer his assistance to Dr. Vierra with getting his personal projects completed. Lets not get to far ahead of ourselves with newly appointed Clerk McGrady, she’s only able to sign papers on behalf of the district.
McGrady is not the presiding officer of the board, regardless of what Dr. Vierra’s little buddy James “Jay” Fernow says. Jay Fernow is another well paid contractor with the district that’s raked in millions over the years for little to no work thanks to Dr. Vierra.
Fernow is one of AVUHSD Attorneys that’s contentiously gets a lucrative contract to look out for the school district’s best interest. Instead he spends his time looking out for Dr. Vierra’s pocketbook by assuring Dr. Vierra is over paid, unable to be terminated and able to hide his family far away from the Antelope Valley on Neptune Drive in Carlsbad, CA.
Fernow has been in the school district over a decade now with a contract that is renewed with no discussing by his big brother Dr. Vierra.
