Yesterday, it was reported that Pedro Martinez, former Superintendent of the Washoe County school District was fired because he supposedly wasn't a CPA (Certified Public Accountant).
From the Las Vegas Sun: The Washoe County School District has removed superintendent Pedro Martinez from his job with little explanation in a move that surprised Reno city officials who embraced his hiring two years ago and is raising questions about whether school board trustees followed the state's open-meetings law.
His lawyer, William Peterson, questioned Wednesday whether the board violated Nevada's open-meetings law when it reportedly decided at a public workshop on Tuesday to remove Martinez from his job.
Martinez said the board claimed he misrepresented his credentials as a certified public accountant, despite the fact he provided documentation proving he passed the CPA exam. http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2014/jul/23/fired-washoe-schools-superintendent-says-he-was-wr/?utm_source=mostpopular&utm_medium=banner&utm_campaign=mostRead
Martinez provided a copy of his CPA certificate which he got in 1992.
But the facts are these. Martinez is not a current CPA and was never was a CPA in Nevada.
But this information is minor and it should have been resolved when he was hired.
Perhaps, a more import issue may be this.
When you look up the name Pedro Martinez under the Nevada Department Education web site, under teacher licensure, (http://nvteachersearch.doe.nv.gov/), his name is not listed in their database. In other words, unless he used a different name, he is not licensed to teach or be a school superintendent in Nevada. (according to his contract, he uses the name, Pedro Martine and there is no Pedro Martinez listed) If he uses another name, then let him correct it. And he never has had any type of license since he came to Nevada.
So, this may be the reason why he was fired.
