APS Board Approves Contract for Acting Supt. Raquel Reedy

Contract runs through June 30.

Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education has approved a contract for acting superintendent Raquel Reedy.

In a vote of five to one, the board approved the contract following an executive session after the regular APS Board of Education meeting Wednesday night. Board member Peggy Muller-Aragon voted against the contract and member Barbara Petersen was not present for the vote.

The contract, which runs through June 30, 2016, calls for an annual salary of $200,000 for the interim period that began Aug. 31, when the board accepted the resignation of Dr. Luis Valentino.

“We are glad to have Ms. Reedy in place to continue to move the district forward,” said Dr. Don Duran, APS Board of Education president. “We are confident in her abilities and look forward to working with her.”

Reedy said that she was eager to get on with the business of the district—student learning.

“Although this has been a difficult period for the district, we have never stopped doing the job we need to do to see that students are learning, teachers are teaching and everyone is working together to make sure this happens,” Reedy said.

She added that she will work with the Board, administrators, teachers, families and the community to see that students continue to be successful.
