9. Diversity Diversity Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) is a culturally and linguistically responsive, diverse community committed to educational equity for all students. APS provides various levels of support and assistance to students, families, and schools that are appropriate to specific needs. APS students deserve respectful learning environments in which their diversity in all areas of disaggregation is valued and contributes to successful academic outcomes through equitable decisions by the district.

This policy recognizes the institutional issues related to inequitable actions that result in predictably lower academic achievement for students who experience such actions. Understanding and addressing institutional inequity will increase achievement, including on-time graduation, for all students while narrowing the gap between the highest and lowest-performing students.

APS acknowledges that complex societal and historical factors contribute to inequities within a school district. APS must provide all students with the resources, support, and opportunity to succeed.  KANW complies with APS Diversity.
