Apr 18, 2017

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Albuquerque Public Schools' middle school sports are in jeopardy of being cut. The Albuquerque Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2pelXR7 ) Tuesday that Superintendent Raquel Reedy addressed the school board about the issue. She says the district is struggling to cover a "staggering" projected budget cut. The proposed plan would eliminate competitive basketball, volleyball and track and field, and would save about $600,000. The district needs the board's approval to make the cut. A vote is scheduled for May 22.
