PED lawsuit comes to Clovis

After the PED put in place a mandatory 180-day rule for all schools in New Mexico, a Roswell judge has issued a restraining order on the ruling. The hearing for this order will take place in Clovis next week.

Judge Dustin K. Hunter of Roswell requires the PED to “show cause” at the hearing in Clovis as to why the order should not continue “as a preliminary injunction pending final determination” of the case. Justice Hunter claims the New Mexico Superintendent’s Association, the entity filing the suit, “Will suffer irreparable injury until the temporary restraining order is issued.”

Superintendents from across the state, including those from Portales Schools and Clovis Schools, are signing onto the lawsuit to avoid forfeiting authority over school decisions at the local level.

The hearing for the restraining order is set to take place at 1:30 on Monday, May 13th in Clovis, with a location to be announced soon.
