Key Values & MISSON Objectives

Involvement

The community, parents, & APS, will aim to collaborate and utilize all direct & indirect resources to improve student outcomes.

Accountability

APS and the superintendent need to be held accountable for goals, objectives, spending and plans given by the Board. 

Transparency

All plans, changes, objectives and information that affects students should be made available in a clear and easy means. 

Improvement

I will aim to set measurable goals and directives for the APS Operations including administrators, directors, and all APS staff.

ABOUT ART CARRASCO

I have become increasingly dissatisfied with the way the education system in Albuquerque is run. I am a firm believer that APS children must have the option to be physically in school. With the pandemic stifling our kids education I want to implement proactive changes that will help propel our kids to become future leaders.

MY DETAILED ACTION PLAN

Keep students in school by setting policies that lead and not follow.We have to find ways to motivate students to stay in school.  Not all students want to go to college, so we need programs and classes for those students to learn a trade or skill. We need work with each student at the classroom level and find what motivates them.

Make sure all funds coming into APS are focused and directed for the betterment of all students APS has a $1.8 billion dollar budget and is running at a loss of $45 million this year.  APS has received $360 million in Federal funds and grants for COVID.  We
need to make sure funds are getting to the classroom.

We need to setup a recruitment program for all employee positions within APS. We need to work with teachers to support them in the classroom so they can focus on teaching. We need to give administrators tools to manage their school and make the work atmosphere positive for all staff.

All plans, changes, objectives and information that affects students should be made available in a clear and easy means.

The Board needs to lead and not follow on policies, plans and goals. Decision to increase graduation rates, teacher retention, financial issues, communication with the superintendent, goals for the district need to be clear, concise and efficient. We don’t have time for uncertainty.
