Questa Independent School District

Dear Questa Independent Schools Community,
It is my pleasure to announce I have accepted an offer to serve the Questa schools for the 2018-2019 school year and so I would officially like to introduce myself to the greater community. I consider it a true privilege to have been appointed as your new Superintendent of Schools.
As an educator for 18 years, I wholeheartedly value the programs and services in place, and I am committed to building upon past practices to ensure that current and future students have opportunities to explore their interests and find their true passions.
In addition to the robust educational program, I have experienced it firsthand over the past couple of months, as each of the faculty members, parents, students and residents I have met have been extremely welcoming and helpful. Please know that it is my intent to make every effort to foster and cultivate this practice to ensure the continued success of our students, schools and community.
While serving as your Superintendent of Schools, I plan to be accessible to all stakeholders and maintain an open door communication policy. I encourage and welcome any questions, comments or concerns you have about our schools and can be reached directly at 575-586-0421.   

In closing, the Questa Independent staff continues to work hard to make our schools a place where your child wants to come each and every day to challenge themselves, to socialize, and to achieve all that they can achieve as learners! Our teachers and support staff are excited about the work they do every day with your children to help them learn and grow! Our schools are lucky to have this talented staff and we are also lucky to have a strong community and our supportive parents. Together, we all care deeply about the success of our children – and our schools care deeply about our community and its success as well! Our students understand what a community truly is, because our community models it for them every day! Our students strive to live our Code of Conduct by demonstrating respect, honesty, courage, compassion, and responsibility because our parents and community as a whole actually lives it! I am proud to be your Superintendent of Schools and will work tirelessly to make sure this strong spirit continues to thrive in Questa! We are all so very proud to be Questa Wildcats!  

It is an exciting time for the Questa Independent School District, and I’m looking forward to the year ahead. Please accept my best wishes for a happy and healthy summer. I look forward to another great year! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with questions, comments, or concerns. My email is GO Wildcats!

Please be advised of the following NMAA scholastic eligibility changes for student athletes. Beginning the 2018-2019 school year, student athlete grades will be determined by semester grades. Eligibility checks for those deemed unable to participate at semester will under go checks at designated marking periods 6 and 9 weeks during that semester. If passing at the 6 or 9 weeks, they are eligible for immediate participation that semester. Fall 2018 eligibility will be based on 2nd semester grades from 2017-2018 school year. A student must now have a minimum GPA and NO F’s. Summer 2018, students may make up multiple courses to attempt to gain eligibility.
