New Mexico’s largest school district keeps top leadership

December 21, 2018

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education has voted to extend Superintendent Raquel Reedy’s contract by a year.

The board took action during a meeting this week.

The new contract runs through 2021 and includes an annual salary of $248,727. That reflects a roughly $8,000 increase to mirror other employee increases that went into effect this fiscal year.

Board President David Peercy says Reedy has provided stability for the district since first being named acting superintendent in August 2015. She was named superintendent eight months later.

The district recorded its highest proficiency rates on standardized reading and math tests this year. The most recent data show the district just below the statewide math average and is about a percentage point behind the state reading score.
