San Dieguito superintendent to sue after being placed on leave for her remarks about Asian students

  • Superintendent Cheryl James-Ward is reportedly suing the San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD) after its board placed her on administrative leave over her controversial remarks on Asian students.
  • During a recent board training session, James-Ward attributed the success of Asian students to “an influx of Asians from China,” adding that those who are able to make such a journey are wealthy.
  • Her comments drew criticism from some parents, with dozens reportedly calling for her resignation.
  • James-Ward, however, believes that the decision to place her on leave was retaliation for an earlier complaint she had filed against Board Vice President and Trustee Michael Allman, whom she described as a “bully.”
  • The board unanimously voted to make Associate Superintendent of Business Services Tina Douglas SDUHSD’s interim superintendent on Friday.
