Posted on 02/20/2019
Superintendent Francisco Escobedo, Ed.D., (in photos during recent visit to record a public service announcement) was a contestant Magic 92.5 FM’s $1,000 Minute contest.

Forgive Superintendent Francisco Escobedo, Ed.D., if he was shaking his head after a recent appearance on the "Jagger and Kristi Show" on Magic 92.5 FM Radio. Dr. Escobedo was put to the test in a game of trivia called $1,000 Minute. If Dr. Escobedo answered 10 trivia questions correctly in 60 seconds during the live radio segment, he stood to win $1,000.


There would be no grading on a curve on this test. Instead, the hosts threw him a few curves. Kristi asked the superintendent, “What does the acronym ‘SMH’ mean in text messaging or use online?” Dr. Escobedo didn't hesitate--he answered with a laugh, “I have no idea on that one.”

When told it means “shaking my head,” Dr. Escobedo good naturedly replied, “I am shaking my head now.” Believe me, Jagger noted, “the kids know the answer to that one.” 

School staff, and students may have been shouting correct answers at the radio throughout the South County that morning. Altogether, the superintendent answered six of 10 correctly. Among the other questions that Dr. Escobedo missed was, "What is the name of the green girl in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie franchise?" 

"Gamora," the hosts said after Dr. Escobedo opted to pass on the question.

Jagger and Kristi awarded $10 dollars for each correct Superintendent Francisco Escobedo, Ed.D., (in photo during recent visit to record a public service announcement) was a contestant Magic 92.5 FM’s $1,000 Minute contest.answer, a total of $60 for Dr. Escobedo. They noted the superintendent was a great sport. Dr. Escobedo pledged to use the winnings to assist homeless children at Vista Square Elementary with the purchase of food and clothing.

Dr. Escobedo’s appearance on Jagger and Kristi is part of the District’s enrollment and marketing campaign. Registration began on Wednesday, February 20, when completed packets may be turned in at students’ neighborhood schools.

The Chula Vista Elementary School District’s enrollment and marketing campaign has two primary objectives: to help boost enrollment at schools that are struggling with declines, and enhance brand recognition and positive association at a time when public schools are under increasing competitive and fiscal pressures.


The ongoing marketing campaign includes greater outreach regarding registration for Preschool, Transitional Kindergarten, and Kindergarten. Employees also are encouraged to serve as brand ambassadors. Employees are being invited to like, share and comment on District social media posts about enrollment. Likewise, schools are encouraged to tout their success stories, and celebrate what's right in our local schools.


The radio segment with Dr. Escobedo went so well, the station has invited CVESD principals to take part in a “Principal Challenge” to appear on $1,000 Minute. Families will be allowed to vote for their favorite principal through Thursday, March 14. The principal with the most votes will be announced on Friday, March 15 and appear on-air at 7:05 a.m. on Thursday, March 21.
