Tony Hillerman Middle School

The board met twice Tuesday morning in back to back meetings.

In the first they approved a slightly rewritten policy covering
the process for naming schools. The policy guarantees that
stakeholders can participate meaningfully in the process.

In the second, they ignored the process that they had just
approved, and went ahead named the new west side
middle school after Tony Hillerman.

This is classic APS behavior; write rules and policies, and
then ignore them at will.

Board Member Delores Griego cast the lone vote against naming the school without following the process.

Board Member Robert Lucero can claim credit for pushing the immediate naming, despite the agreed upon, and then ignored, process for involving student stakeholders.
