ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Albuquerque Public School’s Chief Financial Officer, Don Moya, is no longer employed with the district because his contract wasn’t renewed.

An APS spokeswoman told KRQE News 13 that Moya was given a letter asking him to return to work because he used up all of his leave time.

He had three days to return, but never showed up. The district then decided not to renew his contract.

Moya had five days to appeal that decision, but has yet to do so.

Moya was put on paid leave in August after former superintendent Luis Valentino mistakenly sent him texts meant for Secretary of Education Hannah Skandera saying he was going after Moya.

Emails also surfaced showing a dispute between Moya and former Deputy Superintendent Jason Martinez over vendors.

Soon after Moya was put on leave, he filed a whistle blower lawsuit claiming he was retaliated against for speaking up. That civil lawsuit remains.

In December, APS said Moya could return to work, but in a different position, which he rejected.
