APS Board to Cover Redistricting at March 7 Meeting

Three versions of the board districts are on the agenda

The Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education again will take up the topic of redistricting at its regular meeting at 5 p.m., March 7, at the APS Building, 6400 Uptown Blvd. NE. 

While the board voted to accept a voting district map Jan. 23, it is going back to look at two other options in order to make sure the final map best serves constituents’ needs. The map determines boundaries for school board representation and will be in place until the next census in 10 years. 

A representative of Research & Polling, Inc., the firm that studies Albuquerque’s demographics and drafts the maps, will be on hand to make any adjustments the board suggests. Changes can be made in real time so board members can see them immediately. 

The board formed a redistricting committee consisting of two community members from each of the seven board districts that made recommendations on how the boundaries were drawn. 

The map approved on Jan. 23 is called APS 2013 Redistricting Map and may be viewed here along with two other drafts under consideration.
