Board Accepts Superintendent’s Resignation

“The APS Board and its Superintendent Winston Brooks have concluded that it is in their mutual best interests to part ways at this time. All involved agree that the relationship has resulted in some noteworthy progress for the Albuquerque Public Schools over the last few years.

The decision to end the employment relationship will allow both the Board and Brooks to establish a new direction. Both agree that this decision is the best option for APS at this time

The District wishes Brooks well in his future endeavors and, similarly, Brooks remains very appreciative of the wonderful years that he spent leading APS."

Statement read by Dr. Analee Maestas, President
