APS Responds to Public Education Department's Call to Re-Open Schools

UPDATE: The APS administration will provide an update on the district's Reentry Plan to the Board of Education during its 7:30 a.m. meeting Friday, March 12.

Albuquerque Public Schools is updating its plan to get students back in the classroom, following the state Public Education Department's announced expectation that all New Mexico public and charter schools return to in-person learning by early April.

Education Secretary Ryan Stewart on Monday, March 8, credited the push for a full return to in-person learning to a statewide effort to get COVID-19 vaccinations in the arms of all teachers and school staff who want them by the end of the month. State officials also cited safety measures and the decreasing spread of the virus.   

APS, which has continually updated its school Reentry Plan throughout the pandemic as the spread of the virus increased and declined, will present its latest plan to the Board of Education on Friday, March 12, at its 7:30 a.m. meeting. The plan, as always, will abide by COVID safe practices and public health orders. It also will give families the option to continue remote learning for their children for the remainder of the school year.

Other details are still being worked out. 

In the meantime, the district has encouraged all of its employees to update their COVID-19 Vaccine Registration, which now includes K-12 Educator and School Staff as menu options for Employment information. 

Also, small group, in-person learning will continue at APS schools as the district works on updating its Reentry Plan, 

More information will be shared with students, families, employees, and the community as it becomes available. The best source for information is APS.edu.
