More than a week ago, the majority of the West Las Vegas school board voted against renewing Superintendent Jim Abreu’s employment contract. No reasons were given for this decision. In our perspective, Abreu did a good job as superintendent. He has been effective in building improvements at various schoos. During the last year of declining revenue, he has worked to make sure budget cuts have the least impact possible on employees, knowing that layoffs kill morale. And he has changed the culture for the better at the top levels of the West administration.
