ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Texas and California school administrators are among the semi-finalists for Albuquerque superintendent job.

The Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education announced Thursday it has chosen six applicants out of dozens who have applied for the district’s top spot.

Luis Valentino, an associate superintendent for San Francisco United School District, and Michael Cardona, chief school officer for Houston Independent School District, are among those competing for the position.

Veronica Garcia, executive director of New Mexico Voices for Children and former New Mexico Public Education Department secretary, also is among the six.

The board plans to interview the semi-finalists next Thursday to further narrow the field. The finalists will participate in public forums on Thursday night and Friday. The board then plans to meet April 11 to select the new superintendent.
