IH9 Indian Education

The Board of Education of the Albuquerque Public Schools will recognize the importance of Native American students’ traditions and values as they obtain their education. The Board of Education works to ensure educational opportunities for all students, including Native American students. 

 The Board of Education will foster a cooperative partnership with tribal leaders and maintain two-way communication with tribal governments whose jurisdictional boundaries include areas within the Albuquerque Public Schools’ boundaries. This cooperative partnership will foster an agreement between the tribes and Albuquerque Public Schools Indian Education Policies and Procedures in accordance with state and federal law. 

The superintendent, or designee, will draft appropriate procedural directives and compliance agreements to implement this policy and assure compliance with state and federal Indian Education laws.
