Staff Input Sought on Middle School Education

As the district prepares its application for federal Race to the Top dollars, it is asking middle school teachers and staff to provide suggestions that will help improve the academic success of students.

We want your input. Please take a few minutes to fill out this teacher/staff survey.

Albuquerque Public Schools is applying for $20 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Education through the district-level Race to the Top Application. APS hopes to use the funding to improve middle school education.

The district is seeking input from middle school teachers and staff, as well as the community, as it prepares this application.

You're encouraged to take a few minutes to participate in an online survey created to get input on how to improve academic success for students in the middle.

Among the questions you'll be asked are:

  • Do you need professional development to implement an interactive classroom?
  • Would you embrace four extra structured professional development days in the summer?
  • What does your site most need in after-school offerings?

You'll also be asked to rank instructional technology support at your school, the quality of your school's use in using performance data, and the current level of school site instructional technology support.
