Supt. Reedy Embraces Opportunity to Serve

"I thank the Board of Education for this opportunity. It is one I embrace because I really do believe we make a difference in the lives of the children we educate," Supt. Reedy wrote in a letter to employees.

For four decades, I have dedicated my career to the students of Albuquerque Public Schools, first as a teacher, then principal, district administrator and for the past eight months as the acting superintendent.

What a privilege it is to be able to continue serving these children and working alongside a truly dedicated staff, now as Superintendent.

I thank the Board of Education for this opportunity. It is one I embrace because I really do believe we make a difference in the lives of the children we educate.

We have made some good progress in the months I have served as acting superintendent. We refocused our attention on students and schools, finding ways to become more efficient, supportive and responsive.

I also am excited to continue working on the Academic Master Plan that will reshape teaching, learning, classrooms and schools to meet the educational demands of future generations.  

With that said, I acknowledge that we still have a lot of work to do. And I am committed to doing what it takes to make sure our students are given every chance for success and happiness.

Again, I thank the Board of Education and all of those who have supported me over the months, years and decades for having faith in me.

I can’t promise that I won’t make mistakes, but you have my word that my focus will continue to be on students and schools as we strive to make APS an outstanding school district.

Kind Regards,

Raquel Reedy
APS Superintendent
