President Esquivel stated that the APS Board of Education met in executive session on November 21, 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 Renewal of the Contract for the Albuquerque Public Schools Superintendent (Discussion/Action)

President Esquivel stated that Mr. Brooks’ contract would not be extended for a year, with a reminder that the current contract does not end until 2016. Board members will prepare a performance improvement plan in collaboration with Mr. Brooks. Recognition of the many accomplishments Mr. Brooks has achieved over the past six years signifies that the action of not extending the contract at this time should not be interpreted as a vote of no confidence in his ability to lead the district and to continually improve.  Further evaluations of Mr. Brooks’ performance will allow for the possibility of extending his contract. Board members are united to find solutions, improve the dialogue with the NMPED regarding crucial policy issues that pertain to public education, and offer the best educational experience possible to the students of APS.

Dr. Peercy motioned to accept President Esquivel’s statement including not extending Mr. Brooks’ contract.  Steven Michael Quezada seconded the motion.  Board members Maestas, Korte, Garcia, Quezada, Duran, Peercy and Esquivel voted to approve the motion.
