JC - School Attendance Areas

Albuquerque Public Schools shall regularly evaluate the viability of schools and school clusters in light of population dynamics, facility adequacy, and site capacity.

Current demographic information shall be maintained by the district across all Albuquerque Public Schools and for each individual school.  The superintendent, or his/her designee, shall report information annually to the Board of Education about the adequacy of school sites, location, access, surrounding development, transportation requirements, the needs of locally authorized charter schools and proposed changes in attendance boundary areas.

The Board of Education shall attempt to limit the movement of students among schools when an attendance boundary change occurs. After a boundary change has been approved, additional changes in the affected attendance area shall not be made for at least three years unless there is a substantial increase or decrease in the student population or unless other circumstances arise which adversely affect the attendance area or nearby attendance areas.

Administrative Position: Chief Operations Officer
