ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque Public Schools is revisiting its graduation schedule after concerns over conflicts with sporting events were raised.
At a meeting last week, Scott Elder, APS chief operations officer, and Julie Sanchez, associate director of athletics, presented a graduation-ceremonies proposal to the Board of Education. The proposal had tentative dates for comprehensive and magnet high schools for the week of May 11.
But some parents and student athletes from Albuquerque High School had concerns about the schedule, saying the ceremony times conflict with state competitions.
According to APS, state competitions that fall in that week include baseball, softball, golf and track and field.
