New Mexico schools have been closed for too long, but when Gov. Lujan Grisham made her surprise announcement that schools could open to “hybrid” learning on February 8, most New Mexico school districts immediately got to work to get students back into their classrooms.
As the Albuquerque Journal recently noted, more than half of New Mexico school districts are back in classrooms for hybrid learning or more, but not the State’s largest district, APS. That needs to change right away.
The APS school board is meeting tonight starting at 5pm to discuss school reopening. You can watch the meeting here. You can sign up to speak during the meeting here.
You can email the School Board your comments, and questions at firstname.lastname@example.org and you can call board members at 505-880-3729.
The unions have dominated the school reopening discussion and have a great deal of power over both the APS School Board AND the Biden Administration. It is important that strong majorities of concerned citizens weigh in and support school reopening. Several board seats are ALSO up for election this fall.
