IV.     Statement of Closure

President Maes stated that the APS Board of Education met in executive session on January 23, 2013, to discuss the superintendent’s contract and the matters discussed in the executive session were limited only to those specified.

 

V.     Consideration of Approval of the Contract Revisions for the Albuquerque Public Schools Superintendent (Discussion/Action)

David Peercy motioned for approval of the contract revisions of a year extension of contract, clarification of “education-related organizations”, and change of date for review of extension of term, evaluation of employment contract and non-renewal.   Kathy Korte seconded the motion.  President Maes requested a roll call vote, which resulted in approval of the contract revisions for Albuquerque Public Schools superintendent, with board members Maes, Esquivel, Garcia, Korte and Peercy voting for approval and Maestas and Robbins voting no.

Mr. Esquivel stated that he whole heartedly supports Superintendent Brooks because Mr. Brooks always has the best interest of the students in mind when he makes decisions, and he has been an instrumental presence in the schools.  Ms. Korte and Dr. Peercy agreed with Mr. Esquivel.  Ms. Maestas stated that she supports all the work that has been accomplished, but she is concerned about extending the contract without the new board members having a chance to vote on it.  David Robbins stated that Mr. Brooks is the best superintendent that APS has had in decades but was concerned about how moving up the contract renewal date would be perceived by the community.  Kathy Korte stated that new board members should be allowed to evaluate and vote on the superintendent’s contract after they have training, experience of working with the superintendent, and the opportunity to review the data.
