SANTA FE, N.M. — Albuquerque Public Schools’ Board of Education wants lawmakers to revisit a piece of legislation that would ramp up secrecy surrounding superintendent applications.
A bill that died last session, then-Senate Bill 259, aimed to allow agencies to withhold the identities of all but three finalists for top public jobs, including school district superintendents. Others would be exempt from public record requirements that currently require all applicants to be disclosed.
However, Tripp Stelnicki, a spokesman for Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, told the Journal in an email that the issue would not be on the agenda, referred to as the Governor’s Call.
“No, that’s not going to be on the call,” he wrote.
