Community Input Sought on 2014-15 APS Budget

The first meeting is Tuesday, March 4, at Dennis Chavez Elementary.

February 25, 2014

The Albuquerque Public Schools is seeking public input on its 2014-15 budget and will hold four meetings over the next two weeks to present information on the budget and get feedback from the community about what the priorities should be.

Meetings are set for

  • Tuesday, March 4, at Dennis Chavez Elementary School, 7500 Barstow NE
  • Thursday, March 6 at LBJ Middle School, 6811 Taylor Ranch Drive NW
  • Monday, March 10 at the Alice & Bruce King Educational Complex, 6400 Uptown Blvd. NE
  • Tuesday, March 11, at Ernie Pyle Middle School, 1820 Valdora Road SW.

All meetings are set from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

“While our emphasis is always on the classroom and student learning, we do want to hear from the community if there is some place they think should be getting a high priority next year,” said APS Superintendent Winston Brooks.

The meetings will start out with an overview of APS’ current $628 million operational budget and then look at projections based on the funding for public schools approved in the most recent session of the New Mexico Legislature.

The input received from these meetings will be used by administrators as they put together their budgets for consideration by the APS Board of Education in May. Anyone who would like to comment, but cannot attend one of the meetings can e-mail their input to boarded@aps.edu or they can attend the March 19 Board of Education meeting and make comments during the public forum portion of the meeting.
