ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The new superintendent for Albuquerque Public Schools plans to change up her leadership team.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, Superintendent Raquel Reedy plants to revamp the central office and more.

It’s all in an effort to save the district money in the face of a $9.5 million budget shortfall.

Under the plan, reedy would get rid of three top admin positions and replace them with lower paying jobs with different tasks.

She also wants to staff fewer teachers and reduce support roles, which she says could save about $4.5 million.

The board is expected to vote on the budget May 18. Then it heads to the public education department sometime in early June.
