A Principal's Guide to Learning Zones - Part 2

In her weekly message, Superintendent Raquel Reedy turns to another principal, Volcano Vista's Vickie Bannerman, to help explain Learning Zones.

Last week I shared with you the first in a series of videos titled, “A Principal’s Guide to Learning Zones.” In Installment 1, first-year principal Kathy Casaus of Bel-Air Elementary School in LZ4 candidly discussed the changes her students and staff are experiencing as the Learning Zones take shape. In the next three installments, you’ll hear principals from the other LZs echo many of Kathy’s observations, as well as some of their own.

No surprise. As an urban-suburban-rural public school district, Albuquerque Public Schools serves a diverse group of students and schools that share as many similarities as they do differences.

All of our schools subscribe to the APS Academic Master Plan, which is tailored to meet the unique needs of the students, families and communities in each LZ. The goal is to provide a more personalized education for our students.

Take note of how the LZs are working to connect the entire academic experience – from Pre-K to graduation. We believe this vertical approach to education better serves the whole child and will improve educational outcomes.

This week, take a listen to what Volcano Vista Principal Vickie Bannerman has to say about LZ3. Before becoming principal at one of our largest high schools this school year, Vickie was the principal at Wilson Middle School.

Thanks to each of you for taking the time to learn more about the important progress we have committed to on behalf of our students. If you’d like to share what’s going on in your LZ, I’d love to hear from you. You can email me at superintendent@aps.edu.
