APS schools given three different calendar options for school year


From KOB-TV:

Albuquerque students could end up spending more time in the classroom.

Albuquerque Public Schools will give every school in the district the option to extend their number of learning days.

Tuesday, Superintendent Raquel Reedy outlined the details of three calendars that will be used for next school year.

Each school will decide which calendar it follows.

Two of the schedules would extend the school year by ten days. Five days would be added at the beginning and end of the school year.

The other schedule would move students to a year-round schedule.

Reedy believes the different calendars could be a way to improve the district.

“New Mexico, APS and every other district in the state is behind, behind the rest of the nation in education,” Reedy said. “And we now have a unique opportunity to complement and to look at different ways to help our students be more successful."
