ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The superintendent of New Mexico's largest school district has resigned amid a "personnel issue" investigation.

In a joint statement Friday, the Albuquerque Public Schools Board and Winston Brooks said both sides have agreed it was best for the embattled school chief to resign. The statement said the resignation was "the best option" for both parties.

Earlier this week, board members met for five hours in closed session over a "personnel issue" investigation involving Brooks and came out without taking action.

The focus of the probe into Brooks remained a mystery and board members refused to comment.

Hired in July 2008 from Wichita Public Schools USD 259, Brooks earns an annual salary of around $258,000.

Albuquerque Public Schools has about 86,000 students and is one of the largest districts in the country.
