ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Albuquerque’s public school system has started accepting applications for district superintendent, a post that current Superintendent Raquel Reedy will leave when she retires June 30.
District officials announced Tuesday that the Board of Education is seeking a new superintendent whose selection would be announced by mid-May and who would begin serving July 1.
According to the announcement, a search firm has been hired to find a successor to Reedy and that applications are due by May 24.
Reedy announced her retirement plans in October.
She served as acting superintendent for several months before she was named to the post in 2016.
The district credited Reedy with bringing stability, reorganizing the district into learning zones and strengthening a bilingual program.
