Albuquerque Public Schools is expecting nearly $26 million in Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act funds to help pay for device and internet costs, personal protective equipment, and cleaning supplies for classrooms and buses.
And $85,000 of that money is projected to go toward services for private schools due to federal funding requirements.
APS’ allocation comes amid conflicting guidance from the state Public Education Department and the U.S. Department of Education on how to decide the amount set aside for private schools. But APS says it will allocate in accordance with the state.
