The Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education voted 4-3 to select Scott Elder as their new superintendent.
In a statement, the board cited his knowledge of the district and their current challenges. Scott Elder has served as the district’s interim superintendent since former APS Superintendent Raquel Reedy retired in 2020.
Elder is a product of the New Mexico education system and went to Albuquerque Academy. He later graduated from the University of New Mexico, where he earned his bachelor’s degrees and master’s degrees.
