ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The superintendent of the Albuquerque public school district is getting a one-year extension on his employment contract.
The Albuquerque Journal (http://bit.ly/Tpwm7r ) reports that the extension approved by the school board Wednesday night means Winston Brooks’ contract now runs through June 2016.
Brooks has a three-year rolling contract, so the board considers annually whether to extend it.
Brooks has been Albuquerque’s school superintendent since 2008.
The contract extension doesn’t change his $256,000 annual salary but it says that he gets a raise of the same percentage of any across-the-board raise for teachers.
