Dear Families,

As you probably know by now, the New Mexico Public Education Department has determined that your child’s school is in need More Rigorous Intervention. Three APS elementary schools have been identified as what are being called MRI schools – Hawthorne, Los Padillas and Whittier.

What does this mean for your child? For now, nothing. School will continue as it always has. Students and staff will take a two-week winter break, and we look forward to seeing everyone back at school on Jan. 3.

When we return, we will continue to develop a plan of action for implementing change at your child’s school as required by the state Public Education Department. The state has outlined four possibilities for change:  

  • Significantly changing the way the school runs
  • Converting into a charter school
  • Turning into a magnet school or
  • Closing.

Please know that no recommendation will be made without community input, and whichever option is chosen will have the best interest of your child at heart.

Once the plan is approved by the Public Education Department, we will share details with you. We promise that this will be a transparent process involving all stakeholders, so that when school starts next fall, you’ll know what to expect. No surprises.  We are committed to keeping our families and staff informed.

In the meantime, teaching and learning will continue at your child’s school, and the programs and practices that have been put into place to help your child will remain.

Change can be scary, and I understand why many of our students and families are feeling anxious. I encourage you to stay in touch with your child’s teacher and principal and to be a part of this process.

But for now, enjoy a little time off from school. Your child has been working hard, as have the teachers and staff at your child’s school, and all deserve a little time to rest and regroup.

I wish you all the best this holiday season. See you in 2018!

Sincerely,

Raquel Reedy, Superintendent
Albuquerque Public Schools

Estimadas familias:

Como seguramente sabrán, el Departamento de Educación Pública de Nuevo México determinó que en la escuela a la que asiste su hijo(a) debe ser objeto de una intervención de un tipo más riguroso (conocida como MRI, por sus siglas en inglés). Las tres escuelas primarias en las que se hará la intervención MRI son: Hawthorne, Los Padillas y Whittier.

¿Qué significa esto para su hijo(a)? Por el momento no significa nada. La escuela continuará funcionando como hasta ahora. Los estudiantes y el personal estarán de vacaciones de invierno durante dos semanas y miramos con ansias verlos a todos de regreso en la escuela el próximo 3 de enero.

A nuestro regreso continuaremos preparando un plan de acción para implementar un cambio en la escuela de su hijo(a), tal como lo ha exigido el Departamento de Educación Pública del estado. Estas son los cuatro posibilidades que el estado ha planteado: 

  • Cambiar significativamente el manejo de la escuela.
  • Convertirla en escuela autónoma (Charter School en inglés).
  • Convertirla en escuela especializada (Magnet School en inglés).
  • Cerrarla definitivamente.

Les aseguramos que no se realizará ninguna recomendación sin la opinión de la comunidad y que la opción que se elija tendrá como fin el mejor interés de su hijo(a).

Una vez el Departamento de Educación Pública apruebe la opción elegida, compartiremos los detalles del plan con ustedes. Les prometemos que será un proceso transparente que contará con la participación de todas las partes interesadas, de manera que sepan qué esperar cuando comience el próximo curso escolar en el otoño.  No habrá sorpresas.  Nuestro compromiso es mantener a las familias y al personal informados.

Mientras esto sucede, la enseñanza y el aprendizaje continuarán en la escuela de su hijo(a), y los programas y las prácticas que se han puesto en práctica para ayudar a su hijo(a) permanecerán vigentes.  

Los cambios pueden hacer sentir miedo, y entiendo el por qué muchos de nuestros estudiantes y sus familias se sientan ansiosos. Los animo a mantenerse en contacto con el maestro de su hijo(a) y con el director de la escuela, y a participar en este proceso.

Por ahora, disfruten de estas cortas vacaciones. Su hijo(a), los maestros y el personal han estado trabajando duro; todos merecen un poco de tiempo para descansar, y entonces reencontrarse.

Les envío mis mejores deseos para esta  temporada festiva. ¡Nos vemos en 2018!

Atentamente,

Raquel Reedy, Superintendente
Escuelas Públicas de Albuquerque

Dear Hawthorne families

The mobile dental clinic will be at Hawthorne February 24 and

27th. Students who were seen in August will get a check up

and cleaning. If dental work is needed you will be contacted by

the dental staff. If you would like your child to be seen or have

questions please contact the nurse, the office staff or Laura

Rodriguez for a form. The mobile clinic takes Medicaid, private

insurance and also have grants for those who have no

coverage. You do not have to be present for your child to be

seen.
