Incoming Gilbert Public Schools Superintendent Christina Kishimoto officially signed a contract that will pay her at least $200,000 per year on the same night the district’s governing board hired its second interim superintendent since July.
Dear Gilbert School Board Members,
It was with great interest that we read the coalition of Gilbert leaders’ open letter to Town residents and businesses last week. We were encouraged that our community leaders had finally spoken out on the raging storm that threatens our Gilbert Public Schools.
“I couldn’t give them the help they need.”
A few months of searching to find a permanent leader for the district concluded on Feb. 11 with the Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board’s vote to hire a new superintendent, although the decision came amid controversy over the process.
From education to economic development, the Town of Gilbert ended 2013 with solid economic prospects, a sterling reputation for safety and a couple of issues that irked several of its residence. But the year might be best known for how it contributed to the foundation of what the town can be in the near future.
Only a week after the Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board temporarily mucked up the Apple-related company deal to build a huge plant in east Mesa, the board majority struck again, again reflecting the highly partisan Tea Party nature of what’s supposed to be a non-partisan position.
So the Great Apple Controversy is over.
A potential impediment to Apple developing a facility in Mesa was cleared on Monday night after the Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board agreed to sign a letter of no objection to allow for the re-zoning of the property for tax purposes.
The deal that would bring Apple to Mesa has hit a snag due to a decision by the Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board to hold off on an agreement that would provide incentives to the company and provide the district millions in tax revenue.
