Alcoholic Beverages at APS Sponsored Student Activities

Alcoholic Beverages at District-Sponsored Events

Albuquerque Public Schools prohibits serving or consuming alcoholic beverages at student activities and events on district property.

In the event that a district-sponsored student activity is held off district property where alcohol may be served, no alcoholic beverages may be served or consumed in the room in which the student activity or event is taking place.

Alcoholic beverages may be served off-district property, even if students are present, in compliance with New Mexico state statute and regulation to individuals over the age of twenty-one (21) at a district-sponsored event that is not a student event but an event that is intended for an adult population.
