Super's resignation acceptance still pending

-A A +A

School board> Superintendent’s status may be settled Thursday

By Tris DeRoma

The past six weeks have seen a lot of speculation as to the Superintendent of Schools’ employment status. There has even been speculation within the school board itself as to what to do with Schmidt’s resignation offer.
Though the board has not officially accepted the offer, Schmidt has applied to become Taos’ next superintendent, ending up on a short list of eight candidates for the job.
And still, the board has not said exactly why it has not officially accepted Schmidt’s resignation, nor has it officially responded to Schmidt’s main reason for wanting to leave. When he announced his resignation six weeks ago, he said one of the reasons he left was that he did not feel he had the board’s full support.
School Board President Judy Bjarke-McKenzie said it’s quite possible Schmidt’s employment status will be settled once and for all when the board meets with Schmidt Thursday during a special session.
“We’re going to have another conversation with him, because there seems to be some miscommunication among the board members, too. “Thursday, in our executive session, I think we will be able to clear some of this up, she said. “By the the time we have our regular meeting that night there should be more clarification.”
