APS Board Approves New Enrollment Requirements

Families will have to provide proof of residency each school year.

April 4, 2013

The Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education approved new school enrollment requirements on a 4-to3 vote at its regular meeting on Wednesday night.

According to the new requirements, each year families will have to provide proof of residency in the attendance area where they are enrolling their child in school. Formerly, students and their parents or guardians only had to provide proof of residency when they were enrolling at a school for the first time.

The new policies can be viewed here and here.

Among the documents that will be accepted to establish residency are a current New Mexico driver’s license or voter registration, a deed or mortgage payment receipt within 60 days of enrollment, a current property tax bill, a current lease or Section 8 housing agreement and a utility bill within 60 days of enrollment.

APS administrators proposed the policy change because of crowding at a number of schools around the district.

Voting in favor of the policy changes were APS Board of Education President Martin Esquivel and board members Lorenzo Garcia, Kathy Korte and David Peercy. Voting against the changes were Analee Maestas, Steven Michael Quezada and Donald Duran.
