Workers have made progress on the Taos High School football field and track replacement project over the past month. But because the track material can't be poured in colder temperatures, the field won't be completed until sometime next year.

Without conducting a candidate search or gathering applications, the Taos Municipal Schools District Board of Education is ready to consider interim Superintendent Valerie Trujillo for the position of permanent superintendent. 

Concurrently, a puzzling statement contained in a recently-filed legal document regarding depositions in an unrelated federal civil lawsuit — in which the district and former Superintendent Lillian Torrez are among the defendants — briefly had school board members scratching their heads.
