On April 17, 2012 Principal Jimenez sent an email to the staff explaining his reasons for closing Exit F. In the email he noted ” the decision was made in response to recent intrusions by unknown individuals into the building.” Jimenez did not activate the protocols for intruders as per the Department of Education. He risked the safety of the students to pad the numbers of incidents reported. On January 13 , 2013 Mr. Jimenez once again violated Department of Education protocols by confronting what he called an individual who was accosting our students. Instead of implementing the proper procedures he took the law into his on hands to defend his honor not the students.
During the 2009-2010 school year one male student on a daily basis would beat his girlfriend in the hallway. I perosnally suspended him for attacking his girlfriend and using derogatory terms towards a female security agent. The student one day confronted me in room 328 when security arrived he was in the middle of a full scale meltdown. I asked Mr.Jimenez to suspend the student again and he refused. While in the Guidance office the student broke a copy machine and told Mr. Jimenez to suck his d@#$. It was at that point that Mr. Jimenez finally decided to expel the student. I assume that those words struck a nerve with Jimenez considering his feeling about sexuality.
Oddly enough, the police were never called for the attack on the girl and when i brought it up i was immediately told it was his (Jimenez) decision to call the police or not. Here is the kicker in September of 2011 another male student beat his girlfriend in the staircase the police were not called until the next day when the parents of the girl went to the 25th PCT. It seems that Principal Jimenez is more concerned with his stats then the actual safety of his students. If Mr. Thomas was such a threat why not call the police. Unfortunately, no students ever came forward to say that Mr.Thomas harassed them and Jimenez has nothing in writing except the testimony of his co conspirators and based on this blog and http://www.mcsmledger.blogspot.com i would say that they have credibility issues.
