APS Board to Take Final Action on 2013-14 Alternative Calendar

The Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education Policy Committee approved the alternative calendar for the 2013-14 school year. The APS Board of Education is expected to give final approval to the calendar at its regular meeting on Jan. 16.

Their last day of school is also Thursday, May 22, with make-up days set for May 23 and May 27-30, if needed.
