Albuquerque Public Schools postpones talk on superintendent, addresses gender identity policy

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) The Albuquerque Public School Board postponed talking about the contract of acting Superintendent Raquel Reedy on Wednesday night.

That’s because board member Peggy Muller Aragon had a family emergency and couldn’t be at Wednesday’s meeting.

The board may choose to look for a new superintendent or they could offer the job to Reedy for next year.

Instead of talking about the superintendent’s job, board members got an earful from the public over proposed changes to the district’s gender identity policy.

The district is trying to change rules to make transgender students feel welcome and because the Department of Justice is mandating changes nationally.

More than 20 people spoke out against APS’ proposed policy changes which include new rules about locker room and bathrooms.

Some parents are worried APS will allow any gender to go in the opposite gender’s private space.

It will be up to the superintendent to implement the policy.
