Important Notice About Upcoming Meetings

Due to the changing nature of the public health condition in Bernalillo County, Board of Education meetings will be a combination meeting with board members and public forum speakers having a choice to attend in person at the John Milne Community Board Room or a live virtual meeting. Presenters and recognition guests will attend virtually. Community members may attend in person or access the meeting link through the www.aps.edu website. The agenda items will be kept to urgent business or those items needing approval to conduct district business.

Regardless of whether public forum speakers attend in person or virtually, all speakers must sign up for public forum by clicking on the link below on the day of the meeting and before the start of the meeting. Public forum will be a part of the Board of Education meetings on Wednesdays, and occasionally, at Special Board of Education meetings.

Closed captioning will continue to be provided in English for Board of Education Zoom meetings live-streamed to YouTube.
