Voting for the change in school name has ended for LPELC. A winner has been decided:
Bilingual Education and Enrichment Academy – 48.7%
Albuquerque Bilingual Charter School – 44.6%
Albuquerque School for Language, Arts, and Sciences – 6.7%
New Mexico Public Education Department rule for school name changes leaves this process up to the local governing board. The LPELC governing board had lengthy discussion regarding the naming options. A final decision was made to merge the two names from above that received the highest number of votes. From there a new school name was selected and voted on - Albuquerque Bilingual Academy.
All required forms have been sent to the NMPED Charter Schools Division for review.
