IH9 Indian Education - August 2008 Revision
The Board of Education of the Albuquerque Public Schools (the "Board") recognizes the importance of Native American students maintaining their traditions and values while obtaining educational skills to enable them to be responsible and productive students and members of society. The Board desires to insure educational opportunities for all students, including Native American students. The Board will foster cooperation and maintain an open line of communication with tribal governments whose jurisdictional boundaries include areas within the APS boundaries to verify, in accordance with state and federal law, that these tribes agree with APS Indian education policies and procedures. The Superintendent is directed to draft appropriate Procedural Directives to implement this policy and assure compliance with state and federal Indian Education laws.
