BH1 – Board of Education Electronic Communications

Albuquerque Public Schools shall provide Board of Education members with a district email address and electronic devices to assist members in completing district business and communicating with constituents and other interested parties regarding district business. 

Board of Education members shall be encouraged to use their Albuquerque Public Schools email and electronic devices for electronic communication; however, there shall be no requirement that a Board of Education member use district-provided devices or e-mail accounts. 

Board of Education members shall comply with federal and state laws and regulations regarding the public’s right to inspect records related to district business.  In the event a Board of Education member uses his/her own personal electronic equipment to communicate about district business, any resulting records shall be considered to be public records subject to state law and regulation if those records relate to district business and were used, created, received, maintained or held by or on behalf of the Board of Education, rather than having been prepared or collected solely for the Board of Education member’s own use.

Board of Education Position: President of the Board of Education

Administrative Position: Executive Director for Information Technology/Custodian of Public Records
