The SFPS Board of Education today approved a two-year extension of Superintendent Hilario “Larry” Chavez’s contract through June 30th, 2024. Mr. Chavez has been serving under a one-year contract that expires on June 30th. Beyond the extension, the provisions of the original contract remain in place.
Superintendent Chavez said, “The past six months have been non-stop, marked by a series of critical accomplishments in the midst of a challenging pandemic. I will ensure that we stay ahead of it by evolving essential health and safety protocols while embracing SFPS’ potential. My vision for the district includes securing a variety of vibrant educational options for students, with schools staffed by educators who see SFPS as a destination for exceptional teaching and learning and Santa Fe as supportive of their needs. Through this extended contract, I will work to make our shared vision for SFPS’ future a reality. Thank you for the opportunity to serve SFPS and work with courageous and insightful leaders.”
