ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico’s largest school district has an important decision ahead of it, and school board members want the public’s help.

Albuquerque Public Schools is conducting an online survey where students, parents, teachers and community members can choose characteristics they feel the district’s next leader should have.

The district is also hosting public meetings and forums to discuss the search for a new superintendent.

Board President Analee Maestas says this is probably the most important decision any school board has to make and the choice affects the entire community.

Winston Brooks resigned from the post in August after the board bought out the last two years of his contract. Both sides declined to elaborate, but records show an attorney was hired to look into accusations of intimidation and retaliation involving Brooks.
