APS Board to Take Final Action on 2014-15 Alternative Calendar

The board is expected to vote on the calendar for schools with an alternative schedule at its meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 15.

The Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education Policy Committee approved the alternative calendar for the 2014-15 school year. The APS Board of Education is expected to give final approval to the calendar at its regular meeting on Jan. 15.
