Removal of Superintendent Dr. Luis Valentino

Because of a complete lack of trust that parents, teachers and the general public have for Albuquerque Public Schools Superintendent Luis Valentino, we ask that the APS school board begin the process of terminating him. Barely two weeks into the 2015-2016 school year, APS has had to switch its focus from educating our children to managing crisis after crisis, all which stem from decisions made by Valentino. His hand-picked deputy superintendent sits in a Denver jail facing sexual assault charges of children as well as domestic violence charges connected to what police called a jealous rage. In addition, we are concerned about his handling of the suspension of chief financial officer Don Moya. Both decisions by Valentino have resulted in a lawsuit against APS, an Attorney General's Office investigation into APS and a shameful and nationwide black eye to APS.This is unacceptable and inexcusable. Like the great Harry Truman's famous motto, "The buck stops here," and it should for this superintendent. We ask that the APS school board members do the job they were elected to do and make the first step toward restoring the public trust in their decision-making abilities by terminating Superintendent Valentino
