APS Focuses on Finding New Superintendent

THE ALBUQUERQUE PUBLIC SCHOOL BOARD HAS AN IMPORTANT DECISION TO MAKE. THE BOARD NEEDS TO HIRE A NEW SUPERINTENDENT FOLLOWING THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT RAQUEL REEDY IS STEPPING DOWN AT THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. APS SPOKESWOMAN MONICA ARMENTA SAYS BOARD MEMBERS WANT TO MAKE SURE THE PUBLIC HAS A SAY IN THE PROCESS.

ARMENTA SAYS THE SUPERINTENDENT’S JOB AT APS IS LIKE BEING C-E-O OF A COMPANY WITH A ONE AND-A-HALF BILLION DOLLAR BUDGET. SHE SAYS THE AVERAGE TENURE OF AN URBAN SCHOOL DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENT IS TWO AND A HALF YEARS.
