IH4 Establishment of Magnet Schools

The superintendent may establish magnet schools after review and input from the Board of Education. The education and instructional program objectives established for magnet programs will be consistent with the goals, policies, and the district administrative procedural directive. Magnet schools will be established to foster innovation, specialization, community need and choice.  The superintendent, or designee, will direct the formal process for planning, developing, and implementing magnet programs. Albuquerque Public Schools will strive to collaborate with community partners practitioners in non-magnet schools, and education stakeholders in the development and establishment of magnet schools. APS will strive to ensure the demographics of the magnet schools reflect the demographics of the district-wide population and the needs of the community.
