ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — New Mexico schools that are opening up to elementary students will be getting some visitors.
The state Public Education Department’s top officials and fire marshals will be making the rounds.
Marshals were slated to go to all 20 districts and the charter schools that are welcoming students back for some in-person learning. They will be looking out for such things as building capacity, air flow and social distancing logistics, but won’t be giving out citations.
The PED also announced deputy secretaries will visit districts with 100 students or fewer. These small districts could be allowed to bring back middle and high school students in small groups through the hybrid model if they are cleared by PED.
