A message from Gallup-McKinley County Schools, Zuni Public School District and Central Consolidated Schools
As a result of the challenge filed last spring by Gallup-McKinley County Schools, Zuni Public School District and Central Consolidated School District, the Federal Impact Aid Office in Washington D.C. ruled today that the State of New Mexico’s school funding formula is not currently equalized. This means that for FY 2020, the State of New Mexico will not be eligible to redirect federal Impact Aid funds generated by children living on federally impacted property to non-Impact Aid Districts in the State. While this is a great step in the right direction to bridging the educational divide experienced by children in impact aid districts, much work is still needed to address the shortcomings of New Mexico’s school funding formula to ensure that the poorest and most vulnerable students in our state have equitable access to educational opportunities afforded other students.
I would like to give you a quick update about Central Consolidated Schools’ recent technology efforts, but first, let me thank you for your incredible patience and resilience during these challenging times.
The following FAQs are intended to update guidance by clarifying questions with answers since our schools will be physically closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.
Q: Are CCSD staff able to access the school buildings during the closure?
A: At this time, we are currently not allowing access to any of our buildings for safety concerns. We have also drastically reduced our staffing levels to ensure we are following the federal guidelines and NM Governor’s orders. We are making these decisions based on factoids about the COVID-19 pandemic.
