One more person has stepped forward with an account of what happened at the School of Creative and Performing Arts that contradicts the version offered by School Board President Marne Foster.
The school’s principal was abruptly removed at the end of the 2013-2014 school year, and speculation about what exactly happened has swirled ever since.
Foster’s son attended the school at the time, and former principal Mitzi Lizarraga has said Foster overstepped her bounds as an elected official in order to obtain special treatment for her son. When Lizarraga objected, she was removed, she said.
While it lacked specific names, a report by the civil Grand Jury arrived at a similar conclusion. District officials dismissed the report, writing that it proved no wrongdoing had occurred.
