APS Proclaims: No More Snow Days


Albuquerque Public Schools on Tuesday announced that asynchronous learning policies will now be in place on days when school is canceled due to inclement weather or on PSAT, SAT, and graduation days. 

On those days, teachers will be required to post assignments in Google Classroom, and students will be expected to do those assignments. If students don’t have access to the internet or a device to do these assignments, they will be given extra time to complete them once school is back in session. 

In the past, the announcement of a snow day meant that students and teachers could sleep in and enjoy the day off. These missed days were typically made up at the end of the school year, after the scheduled last day of school.

Due to the elongated APS calendar for the 2023-2024 school year, our official last day of school is on May 31st. So, if we ever had to make up any school days due to inclement weather, our school year wouldn’t be ending until the start of June.

    Overall I guess it makes sense to not want to prolong the year into June. My assumption though is that most teachers aren’t going to assign anything, especially since most actual snow days catch us off-guard. Instead, even for scheduled things like the SATs, they’ll probably just have those be make-up days.
