ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An Albuquerque charter school is in limbo.
After Albuquerque Public Schools decided to withhold approval of La Resolana Leadership Academy’s contract earlier this year, the school appealed to Public Education Department Secretary-designate Christopher Ruszkowski. The appeal is pending and has kept the school up and running in the meantime.
Ruszkowski is now claiming APS “botched” the charter contract process and said it’s taken months to clarify the situation – and there’s still no formal decision made on whether the school will stay open.
But APS spokeswoman Monica Armenta said PED has not provided that feedback to the district and couldn’t comment until it did.
