HIS­TORY OF PLANS FOR APS’ LOW­EST-PER­FORM­ING SCHOOLS

Albuquerque Journal - - WORLD & NATION -

The Pub­lic Ed­u­ca­tion De­part­ment an­nounces Los Padil­las, Whit­tier, Hawthorne ele­men­tary schools are in need of "more rig­or­ous in­ter­ven­tion" or MRI and out­lined the dis­tricts' op­tions.

APS' plans are de­nied by PED and the district is asked to re­sub­mit. PED had said the sub­mis­sions didn’t sig­nif­i­cantly re­design or re­struc­ture the schools in ev­ery way.

APS' plans to re­struc­ture and im­prove the three worst-per­form­ing schools are ap­proved by the APS Board of Ed­u­ca­tion to sub­mit to PED.

APS re­sponds to the state de­part­ment's con­di­tional ap­proval. The district ac­cepts but with terms of its own, say­ing it has the right to stop or change im­ple­men­ta­tion of the plan if needed.

PED con­di­tion­ally ap­proves plans to re­struc­ture and re­design Los Padil­las and Whit­tier, while re­quir­ing "cham­pion and pro­vide choice" for Hawthorne.
