Full staff listing

The Indian Education Department provides special programs to students and families who have submitted a Form 506 and Certificate of Indian Blood (CIB) to the department. 

There are several resource teachers available at various elementary, middle, and high school to provide academic and cultural enrichment to Native American students.

The Indian Education Department (IED) was established as part of the Albuquerque Public School district in 1974, with the primary purpose for advocacy and representation for the 115 different American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) Tribes enrolled in the school district. There are approximately 5,650 or 5.1% AI/AN students currently enrolled in APS.

The Indian Education Department from the Albuquerque Public Schools would like to hear from you on this survey as the school district prepares to begin school on August 12, 2020. As you are aware, the district will begin school on August 12, 2020 with full time virtual instruction through Labor Day.  Then after Labor Day the Hybrid instruction will start.  You will be updated on the APS website as we approach August 12, 2020.  Please click here to complete the survey by August 28, 2020.
