Community Input Sought on 2015-16 Albuquerque Public Schools Budget

Budget meetings set for March 10 & 19

The Albuquerque Public Schools is seeking public input on its 2015-16 budget and will hold two meetings in the coming weeks to present information on the budget and get feedback from the community about what the priorities should be.

The first meeting is set for March 10 in the John Milne Community Board Room at the Alice & Bruce King Educational Complex (City Centre) at 6400 Uptown Blvd. NE and the second meeting will be at Tony Hillerman Mid-School, 8101 Rainbow Blvd. NW. Both meetings are set for 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 Brad Winter.

The meetings will start out with an overview of APS’ current $690 million operational budget and then look at projections for next year based on the state budget currently being debated in the current session of the New Mexico Legislature.

“Because the state has not yet approved a budget for next year, we still don’t know what the final funding coming from the state will be,” said APS Chief Financial Officer Don Moya. “The input we receive at these meetings will be used by administrators as they put together their budgets for consideration by the APS Board of Education in May.”
