Mora schools superintendent steps down after 3 months on the job

News

MORA, N.M. (KRQE) – The new Mora Independent School District Superintendent is stepping down after three months on the job.

According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, the board will meet Tuesday to vote on whether to accept Lee Ann Salazar Montoya’s resignation.

Teachers and staff have been calling for her resignation after the union said she unjustly fired three teachers over the summer. Salazar called the allegations false, saying the three employees didn’t sign their yearly contracts in time and were not renewed for employment.

This comes after former Superintendent Charles Trujillo resigned last year.

Last month, New Mexico State Police arrested Trujillo, saying he falsified documents and licenses to get the job as head of the district.
