General Provisions

Albuquerque Public Schools shall require that families prove residency upon annual registration of their student.  This procedural directive outlines acceptable documents schools may use to verify residency of students upon registration.

All documents used to verify residence under this procedural directive shall reflect the same address within the Albuquerque Public School district. A failure to provide the information above may prevent enrollment in the school.  No school shall deny a student enrollment due to lack of providing proof of residency. However, students unable to provide documentation required shall request an exception with the superintendent, or his/her designee, or the Board of Education.

Students who are homeless and are provided protection under the McKinney-Vento Act shall be required to follow appropriate enrollment procedures as provided by federal law.

Annual Registration Requirements

Assignment of students to school shall be based on the residence of the student. Families shall provide proof of residency of students every year during registration and/or enrollment.  Acceptable documents to establish residency include any of the following:

  • Current New Mexico driver's license, New Mexico identification card, or other government issued photo ID showing an address;
  • A Deed, or Mortgage Payment dated within the past 60 days;
  • Property Tax Bill dated within the last year;
  • A current Lease or Section 8 Agreement;
  • A Utility Bill dated within the past 60 days;
  • Voter registration documentation from Bernalillo County with the address of the residence;
  • Military orders indicating the family lives on a local military base; or
  • A valid, district-approved transfer to the school outside the geographical boundary of the residence of the student.

Additional Residency Proof in Schools Exceeding Site Capacity

Albuquerque Public Schools may require additional documentation to establish and validate residency when any school exceeds site capacity, or in other circumstances identified by Albuquerque Public Schools or school administration.   In such circumstances, Albuquerque Public Schools may request more than one of the following documents to validate residence of the student:

  • Deed, Mortgage statement (current within 30 days), or Bernalillo County Property Tax Bill dated within the last year;
  • Executed lease/rental agreement with the name, address, and telephone number of the owner/lessee (current within 30 days);
  • Utility bill (current within 30 days);
  • New Mexico driver's license, New Mexico identification card, or other government issued photo ID with the address of the residence (current within 30 days);
  • Mail delivered by the United States Postal Service other than general mail addressed to occupant or resident with the address of the residence (current);
  • Correspondence addressed to the parent(s) from an office of a federal, state, or local county governmental agency (current);
  • Voter registration documentation from Bernalillo County with the address of the residence;
  • A current motor vehicle registration (tag receipt) with the address of the residence;
  • Military orders indicating the family lives on a local military base;
  • A valid, district-approved transfer to the school outside the geographical boundary of the residence of the student; or
  • Any other document(s) that, based on the professional judgment of the school administration, provides evidence of intent to remain at the location of legal residence within the geographic boundaries of the school.

Dear GBES Families,

In light of the horrific school shooting in Florida, APS has received numerous calls and emails from concerned parents and guardians wanting to know what measures Albuquerque Public Schools takes to keep students and staff safe.

As Superintendent Reedy posted to APS.edu and social media sites and shared with employees, we have reviewed our school site safety plan which includes detailed instructions for a host of possible emergency situations including an active shooter on campus.

Here is some information we can share about how we address school safety:

  • Our school has a site safety plan that includes specific instructions
  • Active Shooter PD has been conducted with school staff.
  • We will practice a lockdown, shelter-in-place noted in our site-specific plans during the school year.
  • In all emergency scenarios, we remind our students and staff to be responsive and follow the directions of all public safety responders.
  • Fortunately for APS, we have our own Police Department that works closely with the Albuquerque Police Department and the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office.
  • Any time a student or staff member sees a suspicious person on campus or encounters a person who is being disruptive, they are asked to contact APS police or administrator.
  • Visitors to our schools are expected to check in at the front office and wear a visitor’s badge while on campus.
  • We have security cameras at GBES
  • We take seriously every threat or rumor of a threat to students, staff or school.
  • Anyone who hears of a possible threat to a school is encouraged to contact a school administrator or police. The APS Police Department can be reached at 505-243-7712.

We all have a role to play in ensuring our schools continue to be a safe place for learning, and it is incumbent on all of us to be vigilant and supportive of one another. Remember, if you see or hear something, say something. You can contact APS School Police at 505-243-7712.

Indian Education Program

Students in third, fourth, and fifth grade Indian Ed classes have been reflecting on their personal values as part of career exploration activities. Some of the values include: helping people; helping make a better world; creating or inventing; artistic creativity; physical challenge; making lots of money; and having time for family/friends. After determining what is most important in their lives, they are considering possible related careers. Students have expressed interest in becoming artists, teachers, engineers, inventors, and chefs to name a few. In a recent field trip to SIPI (Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute), they got a taste for college study programs, including Culinary Arts and Pre Engineering/Robotics. Thank you to our wonderful chaperones and to the students and staff at SIPI for this enriching opportunity! Cari Kerkhoff, Indian Ed. Resource

Schools on a traditional calendar: June 20-July 25

 

What is the K3+ program?
K3+ is a 25-day summer program for students at high-need schools that emphasize literacy, math, art, music, science literacy and social skills. Students who take advantage of the 25 bonus instructional days have more time to devote to studies that can greatly benefit them in the years ahead. The program’s purpose is to help narrow the achievement gap between disadvantaged students and other students. It also aims to increase cognitive skills, help improve test scores and provide summer enrichment experiences.

Who is eligible?
All incoming kindergartners through third graders at 38 participating schools can sign up.

In light of the horrific school shooting in Florida, we have received numerous calls and emails from concerned parents and guardians wanting to know what measures Albuquerque Public Schools takes to keep its students and staff safe.

 

As Superintendent Reedy stated in a message posted to APS.edu and social media sites and shared with employees, we have asked all of our schools to review their site safety plans which include detailed instructions for a host of possible emergency situations including an active shooter on campus.

 

Here is some information we can share about how we address school safety:

  • Our school safety plans include site and school-specific instructions relevant to each individual school, depending on the design and layout of the building.
  • We require schools to practice lockdown, shelter-in-place and evacuation drills according to these site-specific plans during the school year.
  • In all emergency scenarios, we remind our students and staff to be responsive and follow the directions of all public safety responders.
  • Fortunately for APS, we have our own Police Department that works closely with the Albuquerque Police Department and the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office. We have police and security officers assigned to many of our schools, and we have field officers who respond to incidences at all others.
  • Any time a student or staff member sees a suspicious person on campus or encounters a person who is being disruptive, they are asked to contact a police or safety officer or administrator.
  • Visitors to our schools are expected to check in at the front office and wear a visitor’s badge while on campus.
  • We have security cameras in all of our schools.
  • We take seriously every threat or rumor of a threat to students, staff or school. We conduct immediate investigations and take necessary disciplinary action.
  • Anyone who hears of a possible threat to a school is encouraged to contact a school administrator or police. The APS Police Department can be reached at 505-243-7712.
  • We do not discuss disciplinary actions because we are required by law to protect the privacy of all students, including students who may have made threats. However, we can say that students who make threats face disciplinary action that could include suspension and/or expulsion.

We all have a role to play in ensuring our schools continue to be a safe place for learning, and it is incumbent on all of us to be vigilant and supportive of one another. Remember, if you see or hear something, say something. You can contact APS School Police at 505-243-7712.

Dear GBES Families,

 

Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful time with your family during the winter break. We are excited to have the students back to the 2nd part of the school year.

 

Before the break, we applied for a highly competitive grant with the APS Educational Foundation for a Community Literacy Program. The grant will focus on literacy and bring in weekly volunteers to read with our 1st and 2nd-grade students. Last week, we were informed our grant proposal was selected and will receive $25,000!!!!!

 

We are doing some amazing things at Governor Bent, and I welcome you to be part of our work! If you would like to volunteer for the program, please stop in! At Governor Bent, we are committed to providing high-quality and student-centered instruction and always looking for ways to being in initiatives like to Community Literacy Program for our students.

 

Sincerely, Mr. Saiz

Indian Education Program

 

Students in Indian Ed classes are learning about the effect of mental/emotional states on brain development. Did you know that positive mental states like gratitude and optimism make our brains more receptive to learning? We’re starting the new year with a new tradition. We now begin our classes by telling one thing we’re grateful for and one thing we’re looking forward to. It’s a great way to connect as a group and get ready to learn together.

 

Speaking of gratitude, I want to thank the students and families who helped make the last two months so enriching and memorable. Thank you to all of our students and parents who shared morning announcements for Native American Heritage month, to Darrian and Mylan and Little Bear Necklace for an amazing Rock Your Mocs Day Powwow, to the parents who volunteered as chaperones for our 4th and 5th grade field trips to Petroglyph National Monument, and to all of our families for everything you do to support your children’s education! Wishing you all the best in 2018!

Dear GBES Families,

In October, we have had eight family events focused on academics, fitness & attendance and community engagement! This is my second year at Governor Bent and I have seen a significant increase in the of participation in our events! We are always looking for volunteers in our school! Please speak with your child’s teacher on ways you can help at our school!

November is time to reflect and be thankful! As I reflect, I am truly honored to be part of the Governor Bent Community! We have a dedicated staff who are fully committed to teach your child skills they will need for the 21st century and to foster their social-emotional development. I am also thankful for the larger community who support our work. We have developed 3 Join-a-School partnerships and are looking forward to our working together this year!  Most of all, I am thankful for the students! Our students are truly the heart of every decision I make at Governor Bent.

Sincerely, Mr. Saiz

Indian Education Program
Last month we started our Native American Studies classes for 1st through 5th grades. Students decorated hand prints to hang on our Tree of Life in the Indian Ed. classroom and learned about Native American Heritage Month. Indian Ed. students will be sharing their knowledge about diverse Native cultures on the Morning Announcements throughout this month. On November 15, we will be celebrating the seventh annual "Rock Your Mocs" Day at Governor Bent, and on November 28 at 6 pm, the APS Native American Leadership Council will present a FREE "Native American Storytelling" program at the UNM Continuing Education Center. Check out the Governor Bent website for more information about both events. Have a great month!
