House: Archuleta school board misses out on a lesson

The Pagosa Springs SUN: On Nov. 14, 2019, The SUN urged the Archuleta School District’s (ASD) Board of Education (BOE) to keep the hiring of its next superintendent a public process. 

When a SUN reporter was denied access to public documents listing the qualifications and characteristics desired of the district’s next superintendent, we wrote the following in our editorial that week: 

“You have pivotal work ahead of you in picking the CEO of one of the biggest businesses in this county and the best leader possible for this district. Please don’t attempt to hide what you are doing from the public.

“We believe that transparency in the process of hiring the superintendent is necessary and in the best interests of the school district and the community. Meetings and conversations related to the recruitment and hiring process should be held in the view of the public.
